Cinnamon Apple French Toast

This may be a bit of a silly post but it was so delicious I can’t help but share. So delicious you won’t even need syrup!

  • 1 apple
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

I started by peeling the apple and removing the core and then sliced into thin wedges.  In a small skillet melt butter add apple, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Stir to coat and cover cooking for about 5 minutes over medium heat.  Remove lid and cook another 5 minutes or until desired tenderness.  Serve with french toast if desired.

As for the french toast I used 5 slices of bread and 3 eggs.  I simple whisked together the egg and dipped each slice of bread into the egg.  Cook in a large skillet or griddle until each side is golden brown.

Mini French Toast Casseroles

Thought I would try a make ahead casserole for breakfast today.  Last night I made this and refrigerated until morning.  I liked the way it came out.  It could have used a little more flavor perhaps some fruit or maybe served with a little syrup; we just had it plain.  The recipe is for each casserole; it was actually more than I could eat which surprised me as I can easily eat 2 pieces of regular french toast.  Just multiply the recipe to make as many as desired.
