Breakfast is my jam. I could, and would, eat it every meal of the day. Now, I know sometimes I need to eat things other than pancakes, eggs, and bacon. Street tacos rank up there pretty high on my list of favorites. But breakfast has my whole heart.
Lucky for me, the kids are on my side. Especially Stella. Other than lasagna, there is basically nothing she actually likes to eat that isn’t a breakfast food. Yogurt and fruit, pancakes, waffles, crepes, and french toast pretty much covers her list of foods. She’s been eating smoothie bowls at least once a day and covers everything else in apple jam.
This fall we have been making apple jam nearly every Sunday. It is much easier to make than apple jelly, and we have been spreading it on all the things. Last weekend we stuffed it into our french toast, we were in breakfast heaven. and then made it again for lunch.
French toast is always delicious, but when you add cream cheese and apple jam, and then top it with some fresh whipped cream and cinnamon…it is simply amazing.
No apple jam, no worries. Try apple butter or apple jelly. We made it both with the cream cheese and without. Both are good but the cream cheese puts this french toast over the top.
Serve the french toast topped with powdered sugar, maple syrup, or whipped cream and cinnamon. You know it’s going to be a good day when you get to have dessert for breakfast.
