Happy National French Toast Day! This weekend I decided to skip the malls and head to my local farmer’s market to pick up some fresh fruits and veggies. Among those fruits were some delicious apples that I had the perfect idea for…combining apple pie with french toast. Yum! The perfect breakfast. This recipe is a lot easier than it sounds and is perfect for a lazy Sunday morning. Serve with scrambled eggs and bacon for a complete breakfast that will last you until dinner time.
