Christmas brunch might be one of my favorite meals out of the whole year. There is nothing like being warm and cozy in your house, surrounded by a glimmering tree and family. Growing up my mom had the tradition of making cinnamon rolls that we gladly indulged in after a morning of opening presents. The past few years I have followed in those footsteps, but this year I am thinking of making something with a little more substance and that can constitute as brunch. Since I made a giant loaf of challah bread (see recipe here) that I ended up freezing, I decided to make French toast and top it warm Maple Apple Compote that has been infused with cinnamon and nutmeg. This is a perfect meal to celebrate the season!
