Apple and Cheddar Stuffed French Toast

September 20, 2012

Canadian TV recently introduced me to Stefano Faita. And you know what? I’m completely in love.

With his cooking.

And maybe his peak of an accent. Earmuffs, Aaron.

So far, everything I’ve seen him cook looks ridiculously amazing.

Even rabbit. Although it did make me think about and look up Rabbit Starvation–but that’s neither here nor there.

This recipe for Apple and Cheddar Stuffed French Toast came from his brunch themed show. It’s surprisingly simple, quick and delicious. The salty, rich sharp cheddar cheese perfectly compliments the sweet, caramelized apples. Dip it all in a basic egg wash, fry it up and you’ve got some serious magic.

You can eat these plain or with a drizzling of maple syrup—totally your choice. Either way, you will not be disappointed. They also reheat wonderfully the next day.

Apple and Cheddar Stuffed French Toast

2 apples, diced

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

10 thick slices of day old bread

5 large eggs

1/4 cup milk

In a frying pan, begin by sautéing the apples and cinnamon over medium heat for 7-10 minutes. Allow the apples to caramelize and reach a nice golden brown.

Whisk together the eggs and milk in a dish large enough to accommodate a slice of the bread.

To assemble: Begin with two slices of bread. To one piece of the bread, add a scoop of the apple mixture, sprinkle with the sharp cheddar and top with the remaining slice of bread. Dip this in the egg mixture and ensure the entire sandwich is completely coated.

In a frying pan set over medium to medium-low heat, add the egg washed French toast and cook until golden brown on each side.

While cooking up the remaining French toast, you can keep your completed ones warm on a baking sheet in an oven set to 200°F.
