French Toast with Maple-Walnut Apple Topping Recipe

I was inspired by the recent delivery of some amazingly fresh organic products by Donate Naturally (Review will be posted Friday so check back for that) to cook my family a treat for breakfast using the organic milk, eggs, apples and bakery fresh bread.  French Toast immediately came to mind and I was able to come up with a delicious Maple-Walnut Apple Topping to go with it using these wonderful ingredients!

Hello, FME. This recipe looks so delicious. Glad you used real apples vs canned. I had never though about placing fruit on top of french toast; what a filling and healthy idea. Thank you for this post and recipe, FME.
