Beautiful French Toast dish that would be absolutely perfect for a holiday breakfast and brunch. Tasty slices of French Toast covered with sweet, fresh cranberry compote.
I’ve had this French Toast dish on my mind since the first blow of cool breeze. This whole month, fresh cranberries have been on my shopping list, jumping from one to another over and over. I was waiting so impatiently for cranberries to get to the store. I’ve been to a total of four different stores (and a couple of them I frequent daily) with no luck of getting any cranberries. Then finally, I stopped at a store this weekend to pick up some milk and BINGO….cranberries!
The second I got home, I started on brunch. This French Toast takes no more than 30 minutes and it is finger-licking-good!! Yum, yum!
This cranberry compote topping is so good, I made another batch after brunch and saved them for little man’s waffles. Since he is a picky little thing, I mixed it right into the waffle batter. These were some of the best waffles, ever! I definitely recommend that you make some of this cranberry compote for pancakes, waffles or even on top of toast.
