Cinnamon Apple French Toast with Caramel Syrup

While my kids are home for Christmas break, I wanted to switch up their normal breakfast of cereal for something warm and tasteful.  My kids love french toast, so I make it a lot!  This morning, I changed my normal recipe by adding cinnamon and apples.

This would be a great holiday breakfast.  This recipe is easy to prepare and smells great while cooking.  My kids enjoyed the new twist to our traditional french toast and quickly gobbled it up!

Cinnamon Apple French Toast with Caramel Syrup

Ingredients- Cinnamon Apples
2 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored, and sliced
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter

Directions
In a saucepan, combine the apples, sugar, cinnamon and butter.  Saut√© over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, or until apples are soft.  Set aside.

Ingredients- French Toast
2
eggs
1
cup
milk
1/2
teaspoon
vanilla
1/2
teaspoon
cinnamon

1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon sugar

slices

butter for cooking

Directions
