On the weekend I like to make something extra fancy and my latest creation is off-the-charts awesome.
I’ve been eating Silver Hills sprouted grain bread for a few years now (and I recently had the chance to write about the company for BCLiving.ca) but had never made French toast with it before.
I don’t know where I got the brainwave from but I’m happy I did because not only does it make delicious, chewy French toast, it’s much better for you than the regular white bread that normally goes into this decadent breakfast.
I wanted to top the toast with some kind of fruit and I had a bunch of apples, so I decided to make stewed apples. They were pretty easy to make and totally worth the effort.
This breakfast has appeared on our breakfast table a few times now and once I didn't feel like peeling and chopping apples, so I dumped a cup of frozen, mixed berries into a saucepan until they were hot and poured them onto my French toast. Delish!
