french toast cups with apples and sausage

Now that Halloween is over (the kids had a great time trick-or-treating by the way), I can move onto posting different things. These were very tasty. I made them for dinner one night, but they’d also be great for breakfast, obviously. They were pretty easy to make, and they’re pretty unique so they would also be great for entertaining, say for brunch or something. Here’s the recipe:


6 slices of bread
3 eggs
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch nutmeg


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

maple syrup for serving

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 (if you don’t have a cookie cutter, use a drinking cup with a 3-inch opening). 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.

    I’ve only recently begun to appreciate the “sweet and meat” combination. These sound yummy. I’ll bet you could fill the cups with a cream cheesey filling and fruit for a more sweet treat. Yum!
