This recipe is one of those that’s so easy to make it’s almost a non-recipe. I debated if it was even worth posting because I figured everyone knows about cinnamon toast, but here it is just in case you don’t. Cinnamon toast is so easy to prepare and doesn’t take much more time than regular toast does, but it always felt like a treat when my Mom would make it for us.
We would usually eat cinnamon toast with rice. I’ve found a lot of people are shocked to imagine eating rice in the morning, but I’m equally shocked to find out people don’t eat rice for breakfast! With a little butter and sugar, and cinnamon if you like, rice is one of my favorite things to eat in the morning. Rice is low fat and cholesterol free, naturally gluten free, contains vitamins and trace nutrients, and is a good source of soluble and insoluble fibers. It’s the perfect breakfast carb to keep you full longer and give you energy for the day.
If you’re not a fan of rice in the morning, cinnamon toast is equally delicious with oatmeal or cream of wheat.
This cinnamon toast makes a perfect morning meal.
- 4 pieces of bread
- 2 tbsp butter softened
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Butter your bread and place it on an ungreased baking sheet. Top the bread with a generous sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon. Place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes or until the edges are just browned. Watch it carefully so it doesn't burn. Let it cool slightly before serving so the sugar can set.
This could also be made in a toaster oven. (Toaster oven, NOT toaster.) The above measurements are just a guideline, use less or more of each to your preference.
