Apple Pie French Toast

Welcome to Foodie Friday hosted by our dear Gollum over at Designs by Gollum. Visit her site to feast your eyes on more wonderful temptations by clicking here . Today is really a continuation of my Tablescape Thursday post. I couldn't give out all my secrets at once so I saved what I was serving for today. Apple Pie French Toast or Blueberry Pie French Toast or Strawberry Pie French Toast or Peach Cobbler French Toast or Boysenberry Pie French have the idea. Any fruit will do. I chose apple because I planned on serving it to my kids that night for a "Brupper" as we call it in our home breakfast+supper= Brupper; and apple is their fruit of choice.

This is an easy recipe but it is mouth watering. The best kind! You will need the following:

4 oz cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup of (blueberry or strawberry or apple etc.) pie filling

12 slices of Texas toast or a thick sliced bread

8 eggs

1 cup of milk

*Combine cream cheese and fruit pie filling. Hint ; I add a bit of sugar to mine. The recipe doesn't call for it but I think it tastes better. For the apple I also add cinnamon. About 1 tablespoon of sugar and one of cinnamon.

*Spread one side of each slice of bread with mixture.

*Place sides of bread together, You will now have 6 "sandwiches ". Place these side by side in a baking dish.

* in a bowl beat 8 eggs and 1 cup of milk. Poor this mixture over the sandwiches and place them in the fridge for about 30 minutes to chill. Turn them over 1 time. Use a spatula or they will fall apart.

*Heat oven to 400 degrees

* grease a baking dish

* Place sandwiches in the greased baking dish and discard any extra egg mixture you might have left. I usually have none left.

* bake in oven 20-25 minutes until lightly browned.

You can serve with powdered sugar and whip cream or your choice of syrup.

I add sugar and cinnamon to the apple mix.

Doesn't look too appetizing does it? Just wait until you taste it!

The perfect dish for a brunch out on the porch.

This recipe serves 6. It is very filling.

Hope you enjoyed our Apple Pie French Toast out on the porch today. Come back in June and join me as I host Summer Salad Saturdays. Every Saturday in June beginning June 6Th. Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Oh my ... mixing up the lovely dishes and a melt in you mouth recipe ... what a great combo! I'm inspired to have friends now. Really, I guess I just needed "permission" to mix and match b/c I have the things to do it with and now I won't hold back when I find only ONE of something that I love.

  2. Oh, one more thing ... my daughter's family calls the breakfast at dinner time: brinner.

  3. YUMMY! That looks so good! I may just try it this weekend!
