Apple Pie French Toast

It’s Apple time!  This beautiful breakfast treat tastes just like Apple Pie – but with less sugar – and makes a great alternative to regular French Toast.


12 large eggs
1 1/2 c half & half
1/4 c sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
12 slices of Texas toast
6 tart apples cored and thinly sliced
1/2 c apple cider
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Butter a 9×13 pan.  In a large bowl mix the eggs, half & half, sugar and cinnamon.  Dip the 12 slices of Texas toast in the egg mixture and place in the 9×13 with six on the bottom and then another six atop those.  Pour the remaining egg mixture over the bread and allow to set for at least 1 hour or refrigerate over night.  Place pan in a preheated 350 oven and bake for 40 minutes (45 if from refrigerator).  While toast is baking, place sliced apples in a large pan on the stove with the cider.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.  Cover and steam for about 6 – 8 minutes or until apples are soft but do not lose their shape.  When toast is done, gently layer apples on top before cutting.  Can be served with whipped cream.  Yum.
