But still looking forward to celebrating with friends this weekend!
On Christmas morning after opening gifts I decided to surprise my family with a special breakfast.We don’t usually do a big breakfast on Christmas morning but this was a present to them from me.
My husband has commented that he really enjoys the stuffed French toast they serve at a local restaurant.So I decided to try a recipe myself with a little twist.
I bought some bakery Cinnamon loaf bread at our local grocery store.And I found this recipe for the fillingHERE
The recipe for the filling is pretty simple cream cheese and powdered sugar.I have to be honest after seeing this recipe for the filling I just went for it and did not measure the ingredients.It was ready when it tasted right to me.Do you do that with recipes?
I made the filling the night before.
In the morning before I started to make the French toast I decided to add apples to this as well.I peeled and chopped three medium size apples and placed in a microwave safe bowl.I added 1 tablespoon of butter,I tablespoon of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar.This is all appoximation measurements as I don’t measure I just do this in my head and according to taste.I microwave this until it is soft and and stop and mix it as it cooks.About 5 minutes in my microwave.
As this is cooking I start the french toast.Basic recipe eggs,milk,a bit of vanilla extract and cinnamon.After I made enough (2 slices each) I put these on a baking sheet to warm up a bit more so they would all be ready at the same time.After warming in the oven for a few minutes I took them out and added the filling.I used a spoon to put the filling on one piece and then added the other slice on top.
I then added the apple cinnamon sugar on top of both pieces and a bit of whip cream on top.These were delicious!It tasted like a extravagant cinnamon roll!
Very easy to make and oh so good but not good for you!This is a very special treat breakfast! I may do this every Christmas!
Remember that cat playhouse we made for Tabita? Well it was a big hit!
She is enjoying chilling in her new playhouse.My daughter added a fleece blanket she made for her a couple of years ago.
We may even decorate the outside yet! My daughter has lots of ideas for it!
It’s a cold winter day here.Spending time today at home playing Wii with my family and staying warm by the fireplace.Hope you are enjoying your day too!
