Stuffed French Toast: Apples & Toffee

Te came down last weekend and I’m so happy to serve him up some good breakfast before he went to his training. I thought of this recipe randomly while I was in the shower and thought that it was a great idea… so I went for it!

Stuffed French Toast: Apples and Toffee Recipe

Chocolate Toffee Stuffing 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 package of cream cheese or neufchâtel cheese, room temperature
  • 1, 8 oz. bag of Heath toffee bits (approx. 2 cups)
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips

Directions: In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, toffee bits and chocolate chips. Cool in the refrigerator.

Stuffed French Toast with apple maple glaze 

Ingredients: 

  • Butter
  • Brioche bread slices
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream (if you have no whipping cream, use 1/2 cup of milk only)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon

 

  •  2 Granny smith apples, sliced
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • Granola

 

Directions: 

  1. Preheat griddle or non stick skillet to 350 degrees (about medium high).
  2. In a small sauce pan heat maple syrup over low heat. Add the apples, cinnamon powder and mix to coat. Let sit over low heat until ready to eat.
  3. In a medium sized bowl beat together eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
  4. Spread out slices of bread and top each slice with chocolate toffee stuffing (about a tablespoon of stuffing will do!). Sandwich bread together, to make 4 sandwiches.
  5. Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture, coating both sides.
  6. Place a tablespoon of butter into the griddle. After the butter has melted,  place the soaked sandwich on the griddle, and cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  7. Remove from the heat, slice in half, and top with the apple maple glaze and granola to serve.
