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."


  • 3/4 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 6 eggs
  • 2-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 18 slices French bread (1/2 inch thick)


  1. In a skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Remove and set aside. Add apples to the skillet; cover and cook for 3-5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a bowl, lightly whisk the eggs, milk, syrup and nutmeg until combined. In a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish, arrange half of the bread. Top with the sausage, apples and remaining bread. Pour egg mixture over the top. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until eggs are set and bread is golden.
