Apple Toffee French Toast With Apple Syrup

This one had me at the name!
I've been wanting to try this recipe ever since I saw it
a couple months ago in the Costco Connection magazine.
Seriously, all I can say is YUM!
For the French Toast:
8 cups of French Bread cut into 1" cubes
(I strongly suggest TEXAS TOAST! There is no comparison!
It means the difference between soggy and substance.)
3 tart apples, peeled & chopped
8 oz cream cheese softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup apple juice
2 teaspoons vanilla, Divided
1/2 cup English toffee bits
5 eggs
3/4 cup milk

Place half of the bread cubes into a greased 9x13 pan and top with apples.
Cream together cream cheese, sugars,
apple juice and 1 tsp. of vanilla till smooth.
Stir in English toffee bits and then spread over the apple layer.
Top with remaining bread cubes.
Beat together eggs, milk, and remaining 1 tsp of vanilla
and pour over bread.
Refrigerate overnight.
Remove from Fridge 30 minutes before baking.
Bake uncovered 40-45 minutes @ 350 degrees or
until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.

While it's baking it's time to make up the syrup!
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 cups apple juice
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
5 Tablespoons Butter

Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and apple juice.
Heat to a boil, whisking constantly.
Boil for 1 minute and stir in butter.
Serve over french toast.

The Apple Syrup is worth it's weight in gold!
Thanks Nadine Mesch for sharing this recipe with Costco!
Of course after practicing with all these fun bakes we couldn't decide
what we should make.....
so we are making them all!
Happy Baking this Holiday!!!
