Apple Cider French Toast

I love french toast - really thick sourdough french toast. I wanted to try something different though, so on a lazy Sunday morning I whipped up this version. Since it's November apple cider syrup seemed appropriate. Our goofy dog Abby even sat really nicely next to me while I was eating this one hoping to have a bite.

1 loaf of unsliced bread
3 eggs
1 cup of milk
3 cups apple cider
1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar - I used dark brown
2 cinnamon sticks

In a medium sauce pan bring the apple cider, brown sugar and cinnamon sticks to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and allow it to cook for about 30 minutes. When done it should be reduced by about a third, set aside. 

Slice your loaf of bread. Mix together the eggs and milk in a bowl, and soak the slices of bread for about 20 seconds each side, you want even the middle to be a little wet. Cook in a frying pan until golden brown, cover in the apple cider syrup, and top with walnuts.
