Cinnamon Toast Crunch

wasn't that the song for the cereal? I can hear it in my head! I used to be addicted to that stuff when I was kid. My mom raised us on goats milk, wheat grass shots and everything that equals healthy. But for a season, my mom got lenient and she would buy me cinnamon toast crunch cereal. Oh mom, you are the best! Speaking of cinnamon toast, when I used to live in NH, I would make breakfast almost every morning for up 75 people. Usually it was oatmeal, pancakes or cold cereal. But there were times, when the stars would align and we would get a donation of cinnamon bread, and if it was in the budget to purchase cream cheese; I would make cinnamon bread french toast! Holy Moly was that delicious. Yesterday, I knew that Bonnie and Paula were coming over. (No Tabitha though, cause it was her birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TABS!)
So I polled B & P and asked them what they were craving for dinner, and the response was French Toast. So then I thought, OMG I could make the cinnamon bread french toast! And it was decided. I jazzed up the recipe with chunks of honey crisp apples, and it was like a moment of heaven in your mouth.

Cinnamon Bread French Toast
serves 4

2 Tablespoons of butter
8 slices of cinnamon bread (with raisins optional)
4 oz of cream cheese
1 half apple chopped into small chunks
3 eggs
2 Tbls milk
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Heat griddle or pan on low and melt butter. In a small bowl mix cream cheese and apples together, set aside. In another shallow bowl or dish, whisk eggs, milk & nutmeg together, set aside. Take 2 slices of bread and spread cream cheese mixture between them, follow likewise with the other slices. Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture and coat thoroughly. Follow with the other 3 sandwiches. Place on griddle and fry sandwiches until they are golden brown on both sides.
Serve with your favorite toppings. heaven.
