For added protein, omega-3’s and a crunchy texture, I like to top the french toast bake with chopped walnuts. You can always swap out for pecans or almonds – just use whatever your family likes best or feel free to omit entirely.

  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups low fat milk
  • ½ cup Musselman’s Apple Butter

  • Sprinkle evenly with raspberries, walnuts and brown sugar.

  • The next morning, pre-head oven to 350 degrees and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Serve with maple syrup and butter if you wish.

    What a great make-ahead breakfast for when you’re hosting! I used applesauce instead because I had it on hand and was still good, though I bet the flavors of apple butter really knock it out of the park. It seemed to taste better after a second day, even, though that could’ve had to do with how congested I was and not the dish. Looking forward to making many variations of this!

    Totally in love with this recipe, Liz!! I want to eat it every Sunday morning for breakfast for the rest of the summer :) And the addition of apple butter is genius for that apple undertone. <3 Musselman's, especially now that they're HFCS free, yay!
