Are you all set for the holidays?  I hope that we can all take some time to enjoy them.  Its a hectic time of year, but such a wonderful time to spend with family and friends.  Speaking for myself, I like to make something a little special for breakfast on Christmas morning.  I don’t like spending time away from the festivities though!  I like watching the gift exchanges and don’t want to be trapped cooking in the kitchen.  In the past I have prepared a dish the night before; then on Christmas morning all I need to do is pop it in the oven and its done. My mother used to do the same thing when I was a kid, so it has become a bit of a tradition for me. :) Today I will share with you another recipe from my friend Joyce.  She gave me this recipe a few years back and I have made it several times.  It is especially handy when I have guests staying over at the house.  You fix it the night before and then in the morning all you have to do is bake it.  Everyone I have made it for LOVES it.  So if you are looking for something a little different for your Christmas morning breakfast, brunch or any time, you might want to try this recipe.  What’s also nice about this recipe is that it creates its own “syrup”, so you don’t need anything else with it.

Upside-Down French Toast


- 6 large eggs
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup milk
- 6 cups cubed bread
- I like to use either Italian or French bread
- 2/3 cup apple juice
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 – 3 cups apples peeled and sliced
- pinch of nutmeg


1. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, milk, juice, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt until blended.  Add the bread cubes and toss to coat.
2. Let the mixture stand for 20 minutes to allow the bread to soak up the moisture.
3. Pour the melted butter into a 13×9″ baking pan. Top with brown sugar. Arrange the apple slices on top. Place the bread mixture on top and press down gently. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
4. Preheat oven to 350. Uncover and bake for 45 minutes or until cooked through. Invert and serve. 8 servings.  Or serve from dish as I do.  (You may need to add additional bread to the mixture.) Enjoy!
