Apple Pie French Toast

By  | Last Updated:  

Did you know there is three times as much food waste between Thanksgiving and New Year’s as there is any other time of year? That means five million tons! Ugh. That budget buster has happened to me more times than I like to admit. I vow to not add to that statistic this year. I have a good solution.

I never plan to waste it but the holidays can be so busy which sometimes makes food prep wait another day…or two…and then wilted produce gets carried to the compost pile instead of the table.

In addition to the usual Christmas season traditions, we have a guest staying with us this year. I’m busy planning menus so that my time in the kitchen is effective.

Maple Syrup for French Toast

My plan is to do as many make-aheads as possible. I’m prepping and freezing some fruits, nuts, veggies, and even entire entrees on the day I buy them so I’ll be able to focus on time with family and friends.

Press n Seal

I’ve stocked up on a collection of Glad® Products to make it happen: Glad® Press ‘n Seal, ClingWrap, FreezerWrap™ and GladWare®. I eliminate food waste, AKA budget drain…also known as guilt…at the same time.

One of the brunch dishes I’ll fix again this season is Apple Pie French Toast. It has a delightful outer crunch with a satisfying chewy center and it’s topped with apples and cinnamon-apple syrup. YUM!
