My son Nathan requests Fried Apples and Bread Slices for breakfast quite a bit. This recipe, we first tried on our Switzerland day, and have enjoyed it many times since. Now that it is apple season, I thought I would share it once again with you, so you can enjoy a tasty breakfast.

Fried Apples and Bread Slices (Opfel Broisi)
4 Tbsps unsalted butter
2 apples, peeled, cored, quartered and sliced thin
Dash of cinnamon
2 Tbsps brown sugar
4 slices white bread, toasted and cut into 3/4 inch squares

Heat 2 Tbsps butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Cook the apples for 5 minutes, turning frequently with a spatula. Add bread squares and turn heat to medium low. continue to cook for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Place apple and bread slices on serving platter and top with remaining butter, melted. Serve immediately. (Recipe from Cooking The Swiss Way, available at your library.)

I usually add sliced cheese (havarti and colby today) and eggs (usually boiled, but today I fixed poached) to a double batch of Fried Apples and Bread Slices for a really nice, filling breakfast, like this:

So what are you waiting for? Head to your nearest orchard, pick some fresh apples and make this for your next breakfast. I think you'll enjoy it. Who wouldn't like to eat something that tasted like fresh apple pie for breakfast?

oooh, yum.

We're working our way through the two bushels we picked. I think this will be breakfast Friday.
