September is the season of the apple. The farmer's markets and grocery stores are overflowing with a thousand different varieties. How many different ways can you use an apple?
|Serve with bacon. Because, you know. Bacon!|
The French toast is just a basic. And while I don't technically use a recipe, per se, here's a good rule to follow.
1 loaf French Bread, cut into 1" slices
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1/3 Cup Sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla
Beat the eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla in a shallow dish like a pie plate. Sprinkle with cinnamon.( sprinkle cinnamon onto egg mixture before each addition of bread) Add two slices of bread, turning to coat each side. Allow to soak in egg mixture for a couple of minutes. Add to a med-high heat skillet. Cover with lid. Flip slices after two minutes. Cook until center of bread is set. Place on cookie sheet in the oven to keep warm while the rest of the toast cooks.
Apple Cider Syrup
1 Cup Apple Cider
1/2 stick butter
1/2 Cup Honey
Place Cider in small sauce pan over high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to med-high and allow to boil gently until reduced to about 1/4-1/3 Cup of liquid. Reduce heat to medium. Add Butter, Cinnamon to taste, and Honey. Continue heating until butter and honey have melted and all ingredients are combined. Remove from heat. Refrigerate any leftovers, re-heating before serving.
