I normally make a full breakfast for my husband on the weekends: eggs, hash browns, bacon. The kids usually opt for cereal unless I break out the pancakes or something else sweeter, then they’re all in. Recently I’ve been working on making more baked breakfast recipes because they are so easy to make and especially good for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas when you want to spend time with family instead of over the stove. This Baked Apple French Toast is one of my favorite new baked breakfast recipes.
I like to serve it dusted with some powdered sugar and topped with maple syrup….my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
