The best way to make your day start off right is to eat a hearty helping of French toast that is topped with soft tender apples dripping with a cinnamony syrup!

I love the apples and I look forward to them every year.  I also love trying new varieties of apples so I chose a Sugar Baby apple for today's dish, but use your favorite.  The apples will stew away while you cook the French toast so you want an apple that stays firm and won't fall apart.  I left the skin on the apples for the nutrients and structure but you can certainly peel them if you choose. 

This is a wonderful winter weekend end breakfast.  One that the whole family will love.  I love the combination of apples and cinnamon and this takes your basic French toast up a notch or two!

Apple Cinnamon French Toast

serves 2

    Apples: 
    1 large apple - choose your favorite firm apple 
    1/4 cup white sugar 
    1/4 tsp cinnamon 
    1 1/2 tbsp butter 
    2 tbsp water

    French Toast: 
    4 slices white bread , preferably slightly stale 
    2 eggs 
    1/4 cup milk 
    2 tbsp butter
    a pinch of salt

Place the sugar, butter and cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium high heat.  Cut the apple into 1/4" thick wedges, leaving the skin on.  Add the apple and water to the saucepan.  Allow to simmer until apple have softened and syrup thickens slightly.  Stir occasionally.  

Meanwhile in a small bowl whisk together the egg, milk, and salt.  Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet, over medium high heat. 

Dip the bread into the mixture, then remove, allowing any excess egg to drip off. Place in the skillet and cook until golden brown on each side - about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from the skillet and keep warm.  Repeat with the remaining butter and dipped bread.  

To serve, place French toast on a plate and top with the apple mixture, spooning over the syrup.
