French Toast with Caramelized Apples

For my birthday this week my daughter Brandy came home to spend the day with me. She brought home with her some cinnamon bagels and a loaf of bread. She bought the bagels from Panera’s, she said because she was there at closing time they gave her a loaf of bread also.

 She told me they give away their baked goods to their customers at closing because they don’t want to throw it out. I wonder if more people knew about this would they all show up at closing time? I decided to slice the bread into thick slices and make French toast.

Which use to be my favorite thing to eat for breakfast until I tasted those cinnamon bagels they are to die for, now I can’t wait until breakfast tomorrow so that I can eat another one. YUM! But today I enjoyed my once farvorite breakfast treat French Toast.

French Toast with Caramelized Apples

4 Granny Smith apples
¼ cup butter
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg

French Toast
4 eggs
¾ cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon sugar
8 slices of bread (your choice)

For topping peel core and slice apple;

(I love using this apple peeler from Pampered Chef)
 place apples in a medium sauce pan. Add butter both sugars, water, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg.

 Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until apples are tender and sauce has thickened.

Whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and sugar in a medium size bowl.

 One at a time dip bread slices into egg mixture coating both sides;

place bread slices on a buttered hot skillet or electric skillet; brown on both sides.

Top with Caramelized Apples and Enjoy!
