"Loved this recipe! And my husband couldn't stop eating it and asked that next time I double it. It was really easy to put together and will become a regular for weekend brunch. I also made it for myself ahead of time and just heated up a couple slices of the french toast and a scoop of the apples - delicious!"

"Fantastic. Make twice as much apple topping, it is delicious and will go quickly. This apple topping could be used on a dessert as well. Yummy, it'll be hard to eat french toast any other way!"

"This is one of my weekly breakfast recipes that the whole family enjoys. I actually substitute the brown sugar and use Splenda brown sugar so that it has even less sugar content and use Skim milk instead of 2%. It is so delicious!!"
