Here’s how it works: There are 9 bloggers participating in this monthly project. Every month will have a theme and each one of us will post a recipe based on that month's theme. All the recipes will be featured on my Facebook page so be sure to check there daily. January's theme is dips. We're calling it Dippin' Through January. Today it's my turn.
I have to admit that I had a very hard time coming up with a new dip. Everything I thought of had already been done in one way or another. My friends participating in this project came up with some pretty amazing ideas, both savory and sweet. I wanted to try to do something a little different from what they were doing.
The inspiration for this dip came from 2 things. One is my love of brunch and this family favorite: Berry French Toast Casserole. The other is the Cinnamon Roll cookies I bought for my son.
So here it is, my Apple French Toast Brunch Dip. I made it for the first time on New Year’s day and served it with French Toast Sticks, Cinnamon Roll cookies and apple slices.
