Easiest Recipe Ever

My kids and husband have been on a huge cinnamon toast kick lately. They eat it for breakfast, for snack, for dessert.... It's the anytime food! And, as far as sweet treats go, it's far more healthy than most other choices.

My mom used to make cinnamon toast in the oven. I hated the way the bottom would stay soft and mushy while the top got too crispy. Plus the oven takes too long, uses too much energy, and heats up the whole house! I decided to try a shortcut and it makes better toast faster
  1. Toast bread (in the regular toaster)
  2. Spread with butter
  3. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture
  4. Eat
  5. Ask for more

We keep the cinnamon/sugar mix in a salt shaker so it's ready to go and makes less mess than trying to sprinkle with a spoon. It's about half sugar - half cinnamon but you can mix it to your taste.

When you make cinnamon toast, the aroma of warm bread, melting butter, and sweet cinnamon makes your whole house smell like you're baking a fancy dessert.
