Apple-Sausage French Toast Recipe

Apple-Sausage French Toast Recipe

Sandwiching sausage and apples between bread slices makes this baked French toast a bit different. "I like to serve to guests who spend the night," relates Renee Olson of Kendrick, Idaho. "It's a great way to get them going in the morning."
