Apple Cinnamon French Toast

Fall is the best time of the year. The leaves are beautiful, its not humid here in Maryland, the holidays are near and pumpkin, cinnamon and apple can be used with almost every dish! Last night, I decided to have breakfast for dinner. This is the only way we eat breakfast foods at home because I am awake enough to enjoy it, plus every once in a while its fun to have a dessert like dinner!

Since it is fall, I just had to use apples and cinnamon. The apple cinnamon topping was used on the french toast instead of maple syrup. See the directions below.

French Toast Ingredients 

3 eggs
3/4 cup of milk (soy works nicely)
1 1/2 tsp. of granulated sugar
1 tbsp of ground cinnamon
1 tsp of ground nutmeg
5 slices of whole wheat bread
1 tsp of vanilla extract

Apple Cinnamon Sauce
1 large apple sliced
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
3 tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar



In a medium sized metal or glass bowl (wide enough to dip bread in), beat eggs, milk and vanilla extract together. Add dry ingredients next: cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Set bowl aside.
Next, take one apple and slice it into thin pieces, leave the skin on it (it will soften up). Take the apples and place them in the skillet on a low to medium setting. 
                                         
Add Cinnamon, Butter, milk and brown sugar in a bowl and pour on top of the apples. Let simmer for 15 minutes or until apples are tender. In the meanwhile, dip each piece of bread into the french toast batter. Make sure both sides of the bread are thoroughly soaked, but be careful not to break the piece of bread while transferring it into skillet. Add a tiny bit of butter or olive oil to the skillet and fry each individual side of the bread until soft but still firm. Move finished piece of french toast to a plate where you can stack other pieces on top.


Once you are finished making the french toast, have your family (or whoever you are making it for) take as many pieces as they want onto their own plates. Then poor the apples sauce on. This way is much cleaner and people can control the amount of cinnamon apple sauce they want. 
This is so delicious! In fact, I forgot to take a picture of the finished product because I was way to excited to eat! I hope you like it just as much as I do!
