Again, my neighbor said, you’re having dessert again. Yes, we’re having dessert again for dinner. We’ll stop having dessert for dinner when I finish cooking my way through the breakfast section of the KitchenAid Recipe Collection Cookbook . I love French Toast so I was really excited to try this, but it turned out to have more of a texture like a quiche than French Toast, maybe I didn’t add the right amount of bread, I didn’t have room for all of it so I left some of the bread out. You’ll find that I’m an imperfect cook that almost always gets the recipe wrong the first time I make it, and this one, I really messed it up. It looked nothing like the photo in the book. You should go out and get this cookbook, try this recipe, and tell me how you did!! (remember, this recipe is adapted, as I couldn’t find my apple peeler)
1 large loaf French bread cut into 1 1/2 slices
3 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 funny apples not peeled (get an apple corer and that’s how you make funny apples, my corer has lost it’s peeling blade)
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Place the French bread in a 13 x 9 inch glass baking dish
Whisk the milk, eggs, 1 cup granulated sugar, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl until well mixed. Next, pour half of the mixture over the bread. Then pull the funny apples apart, or cut them in half and it will fall apart. Places the slices you now have over the bread. Pour the remaining half of egg mixture over the apples.
Combine the remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in small bowl; sprinkle over the casserole. Cover your creation and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and bake uncovered 1 hour or until eggs are set.
