Apple Cinnamon French Toast

When I woke up this morning and realized it was going to be yet another cold and dreary day outside I decided to make a breakfast that would turn this crummy fall day into a slightly less-crummy fall day. And so, breakfast comfort food was a must.  I wanted the house warm and smelling of delicious fall food.  Plus, I needed an excuse for my darling boyfriend to stay home from work just a wee bit longer (but shhhh that's our little secret). So, I decided that my special apple cinnamon french toast was the way to go! This recipe is actually quite simple and doesn't take too much effort or time to make. 

All you need is:
- Two eggs
-Delicious french toast worthy bread (figure 2 pieces per person)
-3 tbsp of half and half
-1 tbsp of honey
-1/2 tbsp of raw cane sugar
- A couple dashes of cinnamon
-A couple dashes of nutmeg
 -3 tbsp of butter

Start by combining the eggs, half and half, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg until all the ingredients are well incorporated.  You will end up with something like this:

I placed the french toast egg mixture on a plate to ensure full eggy coverage on each piece of bread. 
Next, cut the apples; but make sure not to cut them too thin or else they'll
turn to mush.

Place the sliced apples in a small pan with a knob of butter then add a dash or two of cinnamon and a 1/2 tbsp of sugar. Cook on low heat until tender to touch.

While the apples are cooking heat a larger pan on medium heat. Then dip the bread in the french toast batter. Make sure to cover the bread, completely.

Cook the french toast until it is golden brown on each side.

Plate the french toast and top it with the sweet smelling apple slices, confectioners sugar, and syrup. Cut, eat, enjoy. 

Breakfast for two
