French toast and Apple pie Mash up! 

Standard

Happy new year everyone! Hoping everyone has had a happy and healthy year, and had some time to relax over the holidays. I thought I would share this new breakfast I tried out over the holidays. Although, I am not a breakfast fan (I’m more of a coffee only in the morning kind of person) I would make an exception for this… very yummy! 

After staying at my cousin’s a couple weeks ago, I was reminded of a delicious recipe she shared with me. Basically it is cubes of bread, mix in some cubed cream cheese and frozen blueberries, then pour eggs over top. It is a delicious French bread recipe! I think I have posted it before, but I can’t seem to find it. But, trust me, it is amazing.

Anyways, after having it for breakfast at her house, I decided that I should make it again. But I made it with a little twist… a little bit of a gamble, but turned out amazing! 

I started to make my cousins recipe by cutting about 2/3 of a loaf of bakery bread into cubes, then we had 5 eggs left in the fridge, so I mixed the eggs with a couple tablespoons of milk and pored it over the bread. Problem was that we didn’t really have enough to fill up the pan, and no more eggs or bread ūüė¶ so, I sprinkled some oats on top thinking that maybe I could extend the recipe a little with oats.

But then I thought, apples would work well here too. So I cut up about 5 apples, mixed them with a couple tablespoons of brown sugar, a bit of cinnamon, and another cup of oats. 

And put it on top of the bread…


Then popped it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. This is what it looked like when I took it out of the oven…

It was really delicious. Apple pie on the top, French toast on the bottom! We also topped it with a little maple syrup. 

Not only was is great right out of the oven, but it was really good heated up the next day too! 

Enjoy and take care!
