For us, oddly enough, this week is Spring Break, and as is tradition at our house, my parents are coming to visit. Unfortunately, the way Colorado has their Spring Break set up, at least in our district, Spring Break and Easter do not coincide. Since my parents live 1,600 miles away, we're just going to have to celebrate Easter a bit early.

We do a large Easter dinner, and have learned, in the past, that also having a large breakfast doesn't work well for any of us. The years we've gone out to brunch, no one has been hungry for a large turkey or ham dinner that evening.

This stuffed apple French toast is a favorite at my house and the apples make it a great spring option (we use a lighter green apple). As well, it's ideal if your Easter morning involves getting up and going places. It all goes in the crockpot the night before and is ready when you wake. Just set the coffee timer, buy a great orange juice and breakfast is served!
