Caramelized French Toast

Servings: 8-10


1 cup light brown sugar
3 tablespoons light Karo syrup
6 tablespoons butter
3 to 4 Granny Smith apples
6 slices Texas toast
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Temperature: 350°
Container Size: 9x13-inch glass dish
Combine brown sugar, Karo syrup and butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Pour into a greased or sprayed 9x13-inch baking dish. (Note: Warm the dish slightly to help spread the caramelized mixture.

Peel and slice the apples and place on top of the caramel mixture. Cube Texas toast and spread evenly on top of the caramel/apple mixture. This should fill up the dish.

Whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla and pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bring to room temperature (approx. 1 hour) before baking. Bake as specified or until golden brown. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before cutting into squares.

*Recipe can be served without the apples and it is just as good!. This is delicious served with scrambled eggs, sausage and fresh-squeezed orange juice.
