Take your French Toast to the next level with the simple addition of tart apples and brioche.
Apple Pie Filling: In a small pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add apples, maple syrup, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix until apples are coated. Cook 8-10 minutes, until apples are soft and tender. Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly.
Cut a wide slit into the bottom of each slice of brioche to create a deep pocket. Fill each slice of brioche with cooked apple mixture.
In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon and maple syrup.
In a large non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat, melt butter.
Working one slice at a time and using tongs, dip bread into egg mixture until fully soaked on each side. Cook both slices of bread at the same time until golden, about 3-4 minutes per side.
Garnish: Mix sugar and cinnamon together to make cinnamon sugar. Sprinkle cooked French toast with cinnamon sugar and enjoy.
