Berry-Stuffed French Toast with Custard Sauce (With a Mother's Day Story)

Now doesn't that title alone make you go "Yummmmmm!"? Well it did for me and that is what I planed for myself and my Sister for Mother's day breakfast instead of what the kids have made a "tradition" for the last 3 years.

Now I know your probably asking why would I go a head and brake a tradition that mine and my sisters kids have put in place.

The answer to that is so very simply. The "Tradition" in which I speak of is not very yummy at all. Actually its just down right EWWW. See what they were doing is getting two of my Champaign flutes down and putting grapes or cut up apples in the bottom then taking the can of whipped cream and putting it on top repeating till the glass was full. Now I am not knocking the gesture. It will be memories that I have forever. But lets be honest here it's not a good combination at all at about oh lets say 7:00 am or really ever if I want to be totally transparent.

So I made a plan days in advance that I would beat them all up and make sure there was a decent breakfast going ahead of time. I actually started the night before so that I could sleep in fore a few extra minutes. 1 point for mom! Well my plan worked as the Teens were getting up I said "Good Morning!" which startled them all. Point 2 for mom! Yay I am on a roll here. I said "I have that fancy French toast cooking." To which I get a reply of "Oh that smells good! But I was going to make you eggs and toast!" Ok so that is only a 1/2 point for me! "But hey its ok Ma I'll eat it anyways!"

To which we all did. It was very good. It was a good combination of everything... It will be something I make again for Bruch when company is coming!
