Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it can be served at any time of the day. No one wants meatloaf at the crack of dawn. But, I love that breakfast is the universal meal of your day. So grab a spoon, knife, and fork and prepare for a tasty favorite of delicious French Toast with Apple Cranberry Sauce.
Fun Food Facts:
- French toast is also known as eggy bread.
- Apples are a part of the rose family in the deciduous tree world.
- Cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs.
Combining these delicious elements into one meal is one of the best ideas ever! Which food enhances which? It’s more of a question of – “How fast can I work my way to the kitchen to get more?!”
Adding the joy of essential oils to the mix takes the flavor of this classic breakfast to a whole new level. Enjoy the rustic flavorings that an apple cranberry sauce can bring to your plain grille’ de’ Francais (not an exact translation).
