Caramel Apple French Toast

Makes 8 slices
Apples adapted from Annie's Eats

5 tbsp. unsalted butter
½ cup light brown sugar, tightly packed
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. apple pie spice or cinnamon
5-6 Granny Smith, Fuji, or mixed apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
French Toast
Maple syrup (optional)
Whipped cream (optional)

1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Stir in the brown sugar, salt and cinnamon and cook for 1 minute, until bubbling.  Mix in the apple slices and toss well to coat.  Cook over medium to medium-high heat until tender and most of the liquid has been reduced, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

2. While the apples are caramelizing, make the French Toast. Place French Toast on plates and top with the caramelized apples. Serve with maple syrup and whipped cream if desired.
