Harvest Apple French Toast
Posted by Rini
2 packages (12.5 ounces each) frozen plain French toast, thawed
1 cup milk
2 medium red baking apples such as Jonathan
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup maple-flavored syrup
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries or raisins
Powdered sugar and additional maple-flavored syrup (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Lightly spray a rectangular baker with oil. Cut French
toast into 1-inch cubes; place in baker.
2. In a small microwave-cooker, microwave milk on HIGH 1 1/2-2 minutes or until
hot. In a bowl, whisk eggs. While continuously whisking, slowly pour hot milk
into eggs. Pour egg mixture over French toast cubes; stir gently. Set aside.
3. Core and slice apples, leaving peel on. Cut apple slices into quarters. Chop
walnuts. Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples,
walnuts, syrup and cinnamon. Cook over medium-high heat 3-3 1/2 minutes or until
apples are crisp-tender.
4. Pour apple mixture over French toast mixture. Sprinkle with cranberries; mix
using scraper. Bake 30-32 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered
sugar and serve with additional maple-flavored syrup, if desired.
