Owning the farm and my own business means I work a lot. Between our family business and three sons, my wife, Kristie, and I love having a fun Sunday every week to relax.
Of course, in our house, any relaxing day needs to involve food we love. This French Toast recipe is perfect to start a relaxing Sunday because its so easy but the stuffing makes the breakfast extra special and extra delicious. Feel free to substitute almonds for walnuts or another nut you like, the added texture and flavor really kicks the stuffing up a notch.
One of the best ingredients in this recipe is the dried apricots. Dried fruit is a great ingredient because it adds sweetness to your meal, but a little bit goes a long way. Plus, dried fruit has a longer shelf life, so its a great staple ingredient to keep around the house when you’re craving something decadent on a lazy day.
