Come time for the weekend and breakfast is our go-to meal. It’s the time when we can actually take a minute and enjoy our meal without having to get to school, work, or hurry before bedtime or homework.
I certainly can appreciate an authentic maple syrup with my French toast, but I do love adding a topper to make it a little special, like sautéed apples and blueberries lovingly enveloped in a caramel-ish glaze.
Apple French Toast
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, plus 1 tablespoon
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons cream, divided
1 Gala apple
1 cup blueberries
½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 slices thick sliced bread
In a medium sauté pan, melt 1 stick butter and add brown sugar. Stir to combine and cook for 1 minute. Add 2 tablespoons cream, stir and cook for an additional minute. Add apple and sprinkle of salt, cover with lid and cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and add blueberries and cover with lid again to keep warm and soften blueberries.
Heat a fry pan over medium high heat and add 1 tablespoon butter to melt. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, remaining 2 tablespoons cream, nutmeg and vanilla together until mixed well and frothy. Dredge bread in egg mixture on both sides and fry one or two pieces of bread at a time, flipping after 2-3 minutes each side.
