French Toast Cups with Sausage and Apples

French Toast Cups with Sausage and Apples (6 servings)

FRENCH TOAST CUPS

  • 6 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg

APPLES & SAUSAGE

  • 1 cup diced apples
  • 1 cup (8 oz) breakfast sausage
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and butter a muffin pan. 

Using a cookie cutter, cut circles out of bread slices about 3 inches in diameter. (I do not have a cookie cutter so I use the lid to my tub of orzo pasta and just cut around the edges ;D)  Whisk eggs and spices together.  Dredge bread circles in egg mixture and remove any excess egg.

Press bread circles into the muffin pan, bake in the oven for 12 - 15 minutes, until brown.

While bread is in the oven prepare breakfast sausage.  In another hot skillet melt butter, stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.  Add apples to brown sugar mixture and cook until apples begin to soften and sugar mixture caramelizes.   Combine sausage and dripping with apples, stir.

When french toast cups are done, allow to cool for a few mintues, remove from pan using a knife to separate from the pan.  Fill french toast cups with apple and sausage mixture, drizzle with maple syrup and serve.

Knife and fork optional. :)
