Mavis Diment of Marcus, Iowa, gives a special treatment in her baked French toast slices. She tops them with cinnamony apple butter and toasted slivered almonds for a pleasant sweetness and nutty crunch.
This gravy is so creamy and good I could eat it like soup. But it's best draped over mashed potatoes and other Thanksgiving fixings. For reheating the next day, if it's too thick, just stir in a bit of milk. — Mindie Hilton, Susanville, California
