This recipe is adapted from a breakfast treat a friend of ours prepared during back-country trips into the mountains. Now we serve it to guests at our bed and breakfast, and it's one of their favorites! The maple syrup, Vermont cheese, bread from our local baker and eggs from our own Bantam hens provide plenty of energy for skiers, hikers and bicyclists who visit our inn!
Each summer I pick fresh blueberries and freeze them with this family favorite in mind. It's a great way to recapture the warmth of past summer days on chilly Midwestern mornings. —Mrs. Marie Herr, Berea, Ohio
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."
The warm aroma of cinnamon and brown sugar helps Terri McKitrick wake her family in Delafield, Wisconsin. Convenient toast sticks topped with granola, banana and whipped cream carry them through busy autumn days.
In our family, this special recipe is often served for our Christmas Day brunch. I was always looking for something unique to serve, and this rich, colorful dish certainly fills the bill. It tastes so good!
