A Wonderful Breakfast Treat Perfect for the Holidays

Are you looking for a special breakfast dish for the upcoming holidays?  Try this simple and delicious recipe for caramel apple french toast strata.  It is delicious and great for company.  We recently had it when my sisters were visiting.  It is also a great way to use up stale bread.  I made it with bread that Brandon thought tasted too healthy. 🙂 

Cube 5 slices of bread and place in the bottom of a 7X9 pan or double the recipe and use a 9X13. Then cube 4 oz. cream cheese and place on top. Slice 2 apples and lay on top of the bread cubes and cream cheese.

Add 1/2 cup of sliced almonds if you like.

 

Combine 4 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/2 T cinnamon. Beat well and pour over bread mixture.

In a small saucepan combine 6 T. butter, and 6 T. brown sugar. (You can also use 1 T corn syrup to make a thicker syrup). Bring to a boil and then pour over the mixture. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Before serving dust with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
