Apple-Maple French Toast

Description

A deliciously decadent breakfast that has all of the flavors you crave. Great for brunch too.

    Ingredients

    • 6 eggs
    • 1 cup milk
    • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 6 slices of whole grain bread
    • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 3 New York State apples, peeled and sliced
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • ½ cup maple syrup
    • Cinnamon to taste

    Instructions

    1. Whisk eggs, milk, vanilla, and a pinch of ground cinnamon in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Dredge bread slices until all of the mixture is absorbed.
    2. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add apples, and stir to coat, until they begin to caramelize. Add water and cook until water has evaporated and apples are tender, about 4 minutes. Add maple syrup and a dash of ground cinnamon; then simmer for one minute and remove from heat.
    3. In a large, heated nonstick skillet, melt about 1 tablespoon butter and sauté the soaked bread until golden brown on each side, about 4 minutes. Place French toast on a plate and top with apple-maple mixture and additional diced apple if desired.
