Cinnamon Roll French Toast
Made by: MCL Restaurant & Bakery Executive Chef Ian Kille

1 teaspoon vanilla
2 leftover cinnamon rolls (you can also use cinnamon raisin bread)
1 tablespoon butter
Maple Glazed Granny Smith Apples:
2 Granny Smith Apples
2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup real maple syrup
- Whisk eggs, cream and vanilla together and pour into a flat bottomed container like a Pyrex dish or pie pan. Set aside.
- Slice the cinnamon rolls in 2 or 3 pieces so they are 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick (slice side to side not top to bottom).
- Melt butter in a skillet on medium high heat.
- As the butter melts, soak the sliced cinnamon rolls in the egg mixture (be sure both sides get coated thoroughly).
- Once the butter has melted and the pan is hot, drain the soaking cinnamon roll slices and place them in the pan.
- Cook for about a minute on each side.
- Top with Maple Glazed Granny Smith Apples.
