A Stuffed French Toast Recipe on a Cold Winter's Morning

I'm always happy when I have leftover French bread on a Saturday morning.
When I worked at a Four Diamond Bed and Breakfast Inn, I remember getting in on cold mornings, pouring myself a cup of coffee and walking into the kitchen to see what the chef had prepared for breakfast. The beautiful breakfasts were beautifully plated and delicious.  It was this ritual that gave me a love for weekend breakfasts. 



In my humble opinion, French Toast has got to be the easiest thing to make for breakfast. So that gives you even more reason to dress it up and there is nothing better on a cold morning than sauteed apples with cinnamon and sugar on top and a cinnamon cream cheese filling. 

If only there was time during the week to have such a breakfast... 



 Stuffed French Toast with Sauteed Apples
8 oz cream cheese softened
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
5 medium granny smith apples sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp unsalted butter
5 eggs
1 loaf of French bread

In a mixer combine the cream cheese, confectioners sugar and 2 tsp of cinnamon. Melt the butter in a skillet and add the apples, brown sugar and 2 tsp of cinnamon. Saute until the apples soften.

Whisk the 5 eggs in a mixing bowl.  Spread the cream cheese mixture in between two slices of french bread and then dip in the egg mixture. Fry in a skillet until golden brown on each side.  Plate the French Toast and top with the apples.
