AMAZING FLAVOR! I made a lil changes...used texas toast(all I had) and no nutmeg. I dipped french toast both sides into the mixture(did not soak). Finally I cooked on medium heat each side as low caused the inside of the bread to be a bit soggy. I used Fuji apples which already have amazing flavor! Great, easy breakfast!
A very tasty breakfast! I didn't have thick bread, so I just used some white bread that I had left over. Used 1/4 C whipping cream and 1/4 C skim milk. I made it up and let it soak overnight, to save time. Then I just sprayed the pan with cooking spray and cooked it on medium for the stated time. It turned out great. Even my DH, who only likes fruit in his lunch, said it was pretty good, considering it had apples in it! :) Will try it with the thick bread too. Thanks, Anme!
Really amazing. Thumbs UP, 5 stars. WIll make this again for sure. Thanks for posting!
