Apple Pie French Toast

       There are so many takes on apple pie out there, including my apple pie with brie [which is delicious, btw] I wanted to share something a little different. French toast is one of my favorite brunch go-tos when dining out but it’s also very easy to make at home so this is a fun combination of homemade apple pie filling and basic French toast that is quite tasty. This French toast would be great to throw together for a brunch at home or take to someone else’s gathering. There is no soaking or waiting overnight involved. I’m big on texture and find that when French toast is soaked overnight, the result is a little too soggy for my liking. If you like it that way, go in and let have. I won’t be mad at you. This dish can also double as a dessert and would be just perfect topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Just saying.


1 loaf French bread, sliced into 8 pieces (you can also use Texas toast)

4 eggs

1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond)

5 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 medium-sized apples (I used gala and fuji), peeled and sliced

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Dashes of nutmeg, ginger, clove, and sea salt

Makes eight servings.

Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and sea salt. I did this in a shallow baking pan for easier dipping later. Set aside.

Add apple slices, brown sugar, more sea salt, and spices to a bowl and mix until apple slices are coated.

Melt three tablespoons of the butter in a skillet or shallow saucepan. Add apple mixture to pan and cook until apples are tender and liquid is bubbly and slightly thickened (about six minutes). Pour apple mixture back into bowl. Add remaining butter to pan and let melt.

Dip both sides of each bread slice into egg mixture then cook about 1 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Top toast with apple mixture and serve warm.
