If you read my blog before you know that I live in Pennsylvania.  I live in the south central part of the state.  Pennsylvania is a big farming and produce state, but I don’t think it is overwhelmingly known for one thing in particular.  When I googled the biggest produce in Pennsylvania, the result came up that it was hay.  The third biggest produce for the state is apples, which is something that is particularly big in my area.  The county next to the one I live in is really known for its apple production and the whole county is filled with apple orchards.  They even have an Apple Harvest Festival every year, which is a huge festival. I like to go to the festival to get fresh apples, apple cider, apple butter, and other delicious apple treats.
 
When Eggland’s Best contacted me to participate in the 2016 Eggland’s Best “America’s Best Recipe” Contest by creating a recipe that incorporates both EB eggs and locally-sourced ingredients made popular by your state, I knew that I had to use apples.   Apples were the perfect ingredient for this contest since they are so popular in my state. 
 
Eggland’s Best are superior in nutrition, taste and freshness.   By choosing Eggland’s Best eggs over ordinary eggs, you are getting an egg that is fresher, tastes better and contains more vitamins and nutrients. Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs have: Four times more vitamin D, More than double the omega-3s, Ten times more vitamin E, and 25% less saturated fat.  I love all the extra nutrition included in Eggland’s Best eggs and I feel they taste better too.
 
I decided to make a delicious breakfast food using Eggland’s Best eggs and apples.  I made a Caramel Maple Apple French Toast.  I caramelized the fresh apples and also added maple syrup.  I made french toast using the Eggland’s Best eggs and then topped the french toast with the apple syrup combination.    

 

This Caramel Maple Apple French Toast was such a delicious breakfast and a great way to use fresh apples.  I really loved the caramelized apples on top, they went great with the french toast.  The sauce they were in also tasted great.  My family all enjoyed this breakfast and I loved that it was easier to make.  This is a great french toast that helps to represent the great state of Pennsylvania. I hope that you enjoy it!

 

Caramel Maple Apple French Toast

Ingredients

  • 7 small apples, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 Eggland's Best eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6-10 slices of bread (I used challah)
  • Caramel ice cream topping (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add the apple slices, brown sugar, and 4 tablespoons of butter in a medium sized sauce pan.  Cook the apples over medium high heat until the brown sugar dissolves and the butter melts.  Then add 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and the maple syrup.  Reduce the heat to simmer and cook for 6-10 minutes longer.  Remove from the heat and allow to cool and thicken while you prepare the french toast.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Individually dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture and coat completely on both sides.  Then place the bread on the skillet. Work in batches if you don't have enough room on your skillet.  Cook each french toast slice for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. 
  3. When done with the french toast, top with the apples and syrup mixture.  If desired, also drizzle some caramel ice cream topping on top of the apples.  Serve while warm.

    There are two fruits that FL is well known for, key lime and oranges. So I would make either an orange almond polenta cake or a key lime muffin with a crumb topping.
