It's time for another Tuesday Tip! I'm thrilled to have found Tip Junkies Tip Me Tuesday to link up with! So if you're visiting from Tip Junkie, thanks for stopping by!
I've been wanting to get this tip out to you guys for awhile, but somehow everytime Tuesday popped around, I kept forgetting. I blame it on my scrambled pregnancy brain.
I personally, love french toast! I would eat it for breakfast every morning, if I could. My biggest struggle with making French toast, is finding the right sized bowl, to soak the bread in. All my bowls curved too soon, or were enormously huge. I remember my mom using pie tins growing up. They really are the perfect size. I just don't own any pie tins (I do have a deep dish stone pie plate). I love those premade graham cracker pie crusts though, and around the holidays, I have an abundance of them. One year, I tried using the empty foil pie tin for my french toast, only to realize a little too late, when I cut the pie, I also cut little holes in the foil.
This year, it dawned on me though! The pies come with a plastic lid! Normally, I open the pie shell, toss the plastic lid, and usually have no leftover pie. This year, I had some leftover pie, and so I had kept the lid. And then, voila! I realized it was the right size (obviously since it's the same size as the pie tin itself) for French Toast!
So this year, don't throw those plastic pie lids away during your holiday baking. Hold on to them, and you've got instant French Toast soaking bowls. If you make a lot of pies, like me, you could even dispose after each use, saving the washing time. Or you could continue to use forever (which is what I'll be doing).
