Wednesday Recipe - Baked French Toast
I haven't had breakfast yet, can you tell from the recipe selection? May make this one again this weekend. I love the aroma wafting through the house while it's in the over. And I have no problem eating my share once it comes out. If I make it when the granddarlings are here, there are no leftovers. When it's just the Honey & me, then I can freeze the leftovers and have for another weekend breakfast! Yummm.
Hope you enjoy!
Baked Apple French Toast
stick (1/2 cup) butter (1/4 pound)
cup brown sugar
to 5 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
ounces cream cheese
cup dried cranberries
slices of firm bread, cut into cubes
In a skillet, melt butter with sugar. Add
apples and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer apples to a baking dish (13 x 9
inches or larger, I use a slightly larger pan so that it doesn't bubble
over). Cut the cream cheese into cubes and arrange over the apples, then
sprinkle with dried cranberries. Top evenly with the bread cubes. Beat
eggs, milk, and vanilla together and pour over the bread. Sprinkle with
cinnamon sugar; put in refrigerator overnight. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 50 to
60 minutes (may vary slightly with the oven). Let stand 15 minutes before
serving. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
