Using What We Have

A few weekends ago we had bread that was past its prime and apples that were aging quickly. We craved something sweet that didn’t include fiber cereal or a meal of 100 calories or less.  After I saw a few posts on Pinterest for Banana’s Foster French Toast we thought Apple Stuffed Peanut Butter French Toast would be could be a possibility.

And wah-la! It was good, but almost a little over the top.  We think that taking the peanut butter out of the equation might balance the sweetness of the syrup and the cinnamon sugar in the mix.  That said, it was a nice and slightly-more-creative-than special K way to start the weekend.


Past Prime Bread

Aging Apples, broiled in the oven until they are slightly browned and have dried a bit

3 eggs

1/2 c. sugar

1 Tbsp. of cinnamon

1 Tbsp. peanut butter per each French Toast sandwich

Whisk together eggs, sugar, and cinnamon.  Spread peanut butter on a slice of bread and add 4 (thin) slices of apples.  Place other piece of bread on top to finish the sandwich and slightly smash together to make them stick.  Dunk the entire sandwich in the egg mixture covering all sides.  Place in a heated skillet that has been lightly coated with oil or cooking spray.   Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
