    Crisp air, red and orange leaves on the ground, it is fall. During summer I am not nearly has motivated to make a large breakfast or brunch, but as soon as fall hits I can’t wait to make a large comfort food breakfast and snuggle on the couch in my fleece PJ’s.

    For this breakfast french toast recipe I combined two comfort foods; apple pie and French toast. Traditional French toast is topped with a homemade apple compote, candied walnuts and a powdered sugar glaze.

    I love all of the flavors together- savory French toast, sweet fruit, crunchy, salty walnuts and sugary glaze. Delish!
    Short on time? You can always buy canned apple pie filling instead of making homemade apple compote.

    The trick to this awesome apple compote is to not let the sugar get too hot and start to turn into candy. You do this by keeping the heat high enough to allow it to caramelized and cook the apples, but low enough and well hydrated with water to not get to the “hard rock” stage. So don’t rush it, cook longer and slower.

    Ingredients
    • 3 large red apples , peeled, cored and diced
    • 1 cup light brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 1 large loaf French bread , cut into 1 inch slices
    • 6 eggs
    • 3 tablespoons milk , divided
    • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • Cooking spray
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 4 tablespoons walnuts , roughly chopped
    Instructions
    1. Start by making the compote. In a large, heavy saucepan, combine apple chunks, brown sugar, water, lemon juice, vanilla and cinnamon stick. Heat over medium-high heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until apples are well coated and sugar has melted. Keep warm. 

    2. Heat oven to 200 degrees. Heat griddle to 350 degrees. 
    3. While preheating, beat eggs, 1 tablespoon milk, nutmeg and cinnamon in a shallow baking dish or pie plate.
    4. Spray griddle with cooking spray. Working in batches of  4-5 slices, dredge sliced French bread in egg batter and place onto the griddle. Allow to cook on each side for 3-4 minutes or until light brown. Flip and cook on opposite side for 3-4 minutes. Remove to baking sheet and place in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining bread.
    5. Lastly, mix powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons milk. Mixture should be a glaze consistency and easily drizzle.
    6. Top French Toast with apple compote, powdered sugar drizzle and chopped walnuts.
