For breakfast or brunch, you can’t top this impressive dish from Janis Scharnott of Fontana, Wisconsin. Warm, sweet apples and a hint of cinnamon make this French toast extra special.—Janis Scharnott, Fontana, Wisconsin
I make a point of saving my leftover bread just so I can make this family-favorite recipe. Kids will have fun helping you prepare it, but will enjoy eating this sticky "scrambled" version of French toast even more!
My husband and I are avid cooks. In fact, we feel like most of our 30 years together have been spent in the kitchen! We've experimented with so many recipes, but this one remains at the top of our list.
Once I made these light and tasty waffles for my family, they never let me use a prepackaged mix again! For that reason, I usually bake a double batch and freeze the leftovers. Then, on hurried mornings, I just pop them in the toaster for a quick meal.
We discovered this recipe in Mexico. We couldn't figure out what made this French toast so delicious until we learned the secret was vanilla—one of Mexico's most popular flavorings. Since then, we've added a touch of vanilla to our waffle and pancake recipes. It makes them all very tasty. —Joe and Bobbi Schott, Castroville, Texas
"There's no last-minute preparation and you can serve several people at once with this casserole," reports bed-and-breakfast owner Lo Ann Brennock of Cloverdale, California. "My guests love the smooth custardy bottom layer topped with thick slices of cinnamon bread."
