A Little Trick

....that doesn't work.

Turn this:


(French toast charred while checking email)

into this:

with one simple flip.

And try to pull a "fast one" on finicky eater.

*it is NOT recommended that you try this at home ;-)

my husband would probably eat it burnt, he complains I don't cook french toast (or pancakes) long enough!

I like your plate, it matches my kitchen colors!

Randi Troxell said...

hehe! you are so funny.. but yep! i could see where it might not work!

here's something... my husband HATES the heel of the bread... so when i make his sandwich if i have to use the heel.. i turn it toward the inside of the sandwich... and. he. never. knows!

Martha said...

That is hilarious! I have tried this trick before with pancakes, and it didn’t work for me either. Darn. Where did they learn to check the bottom?

Rebecca Jo said...

I HATE when one side looks good & the other is burnt like a crisp fire has just engulfed it...

Vodka Logic said...

lol.. might get a bite or two but then they catch on.

Me, I like my toast that way.

Didn't I read somewhere that burnt toast was good for something? That's my excuse anyway, and I'm sticking to it. :D

I have the world's most finnicky eater that inspects everything he eats-all over. Unfortunately this didn't work for me either. He said,"Ewww! I can't eat this it has black on it". I tried to convince him the black part made it taste better but he wouldn't buy it!

Michele said...

Tried it.... you're right. Doesn't work.

thanks for the mornin' giggle.

Ahh...the "TV Side".
Unsuccessful with burnt grilled cheese sammies too.

Lucy said...

French Toast during the week? Your awesome! Oops, guess not from the looks (lol) Only cereal and Fried Eggs in my house, quick and easy during the week. Oh, and the flip never works in my house either.

Alicia said...

kyslp said...

Doesn't fly at my house either.

Tina said...

Doesn't work at my house either. Darnit.

Hehe! Did you dump a bunch of syrup on them first? Maybe that would help....of maybe not. :)

Beth said...

So, you know magic?

Stacie said...

I am not the only mom that gets lost in email that forgets they are cooking something. LOL My son would figure out that it was burned on one side. LOL

Amanda said...

lol

Its like you can do magic!! And you think I'm the baker in this relationship. ;)

Blessings goof ball-

Ha - funny!
I have never been so bold as to try the "flip it and it's fine!" method, but I have used the "scrape it and it's fine" method. I suspect my method worked as well as yours! :)

cherie said...

God bless.

Joy said...

Ha ha ha ha

You kill me. I'm guilty of this too.

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Yep, I've tried that one. Doesn't work...

Roshni Mitra Chintalapati said...

I try it all the time! :(

Yaya said...

Haha! I do this with the kids I nanny for!

Shawn said...

Oh, dear---no---it doesn't work....

Also, thanks for the encouraging comment on my blog---you are the greatest!

Whoops----forgot to sign in as my real self!!

Stephanie Faris said...

I've tried it too...didn't work. "This toast is burnt on the bottom," is the response I got. My boyfriend's daughter seems to only want Ramen noodles or garlic parmesan butter noodles while she's here, though. I even have chocolate chip banana bread for his mom's visit. She mostly wants noodles.

Janna Bee said...

Yeah, this totally wouldn't work in my house.
