French connected Southern comfort

Staying in

Since I’m on vacation getting spoiled out of my mind and all, I haven’t done much cooking lately. Close to none, actually. Yesterday was a much needed break from this lazy routine as we had my friends Pat and Ashlee over for breakfast and I helped with making overnight french toast. I’ve told you before we’re not much for cooked breakfasts over in Sweden, and for the most part I’m fine with my toast and cereal, but every now and then it’s nice eating something with a little more heart in it. This dish does (and a touch of sugar too).

Here’s how to: cut a loaf of day-old French bread in even pieces. Put them in a greased pan. Beat 8 eggs, whisk in 1 dl of sugar, 8 dl of milk and 1 tbsp vanilla. Pour half of this mixture over the bread. Place sliced apples over it and then pour the rest of the mix over. Combine 1 dl of sugar, 3 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg and sprinkle over the apples. Cut some butter (it’s not comfort food if it doesn’t have butter in it) in pieces and place on top. Refrigerate over night, then bake it in the oven for about an hour. Serve with warm syrup. Best eaten in a homy environment with long-time friends.
