My suggestions with this recipe:
-The recipe calls for wheat bread, I used 1/2 potato bread and 1/2 oatnut bread that I had on hand. The oatnut bread was SOOO much better!
-I would let the bread filling soak for a minute or two, so that the flavors marry together.
Baked French Toast Cups
Adapted from Live.Love.Eat
makes 6 servings
4 slices whole wheat bread, cut into cubes
1/4 cup milk (I used fat free)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
dash of ground nutmeg
For the apples:
1 large apple of your choice, cut into cubes
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
In a medium skillet, saute apples with butter & cinnamon for about 5 minutes, or until soft. Set aside. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon & nutmeg until well combined. Add bread cubes & mix together until all the bread is saturated. Add the apples & mix until well distributed. Using a regular size muffin tin, scoop bread evenly into 6 greased muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until set & lightly golden brown.
