Sometimes we need a little extra kick to our breakfast.  This French toast recipe is surprisingly easy and uncomplicated.  You can even make it the night before!

This recipe can be easily doubled for a crowd and will fit in a 9×13 pan.  Otherwise, use a 9×9 pan.


-1/4 Cup Butter
-1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
-2 Tablespoons Bourbon
-2 Apples, sliced
-1/2 of a Baguette, sliced thick
-2 Eggs
-1/2 Cup Milk
-1 teaspoon Vanilla
-1 teaspoon Cinnamon
-1 Dash Nutmeg

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.
Add brown sugar and bourbon, cook until sugar is fully melted.

While the sauce is on the stovetop, slice the apples.

Pour the sauce in the bottom of a 9×9 inch baking pan.  Place apple slices on top.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and sugar in a medium sized bowl.

Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture, being sure to coat both sides.

Place the pieces of bread on top of the sliced apples.

Bake at 350F for 30 minutes, or until apples can be pierced with a fork.

When serving, spoon the sauce from the bottom on top of the bread and apples.
