Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Toffee Apple French Toast

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Toffee Apple French Toast

I really hate to admit it, but I am not a morning person. I am not a chipper, get out of the bed and make a hot breakfast for everyone kind of girl. I found this recipe a long time ago, I think from Taste of Home, and really love it because I can assemble it in the evening, and all I have to do is pop it in the oven when we wake up in the morning. It’s a real winner in terms of ease to make as well as taste! This is sweet enough on it's own, so no syrup or powder sugar needed.

 




Ingredients

8 cups cubed French bread

2 medium tart apples, peeled and chopped

1 pk cream cheese (8oz) softened

3/4 cup brown sugar

1-3/4 cups milk, divided

2 tsp vanilla extract, divided

1/2 cup English toffee bits (I use Heath toffee chips found by the regular chocolate chips)

5 eggs


Directions

Place 1/2 the bread cubes in a greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Top with apples.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugars, 1/4 cup milk, and 1 tsp vanilla until smooth. Stir in toffee bits. Spread over apples. Top with remaining bread cubes.

In another bowl, beat the eggs and remaining milk and vanilla until blended. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until knife inserted through center comes out clean.

Serve.

Makes 8 servings.

    1. Yes! I also hate messing up my clean kitchen! For some reason cooking breakfast foods always seem to take longer for me to clean up the mess too.

    1. I am so thankful my kids are getting older. Allison sleeps in late and Mariah is old enough to entertain herself. I am so enjoying being able to sleep in a little later now :)
