Apple Peanut Butter French Toast - From Parade Magazine

Takes about 35 minutes. Feeds 4-6.

What You Need

  • 1 apple, peeled and divided: ½ diced and ½ thinly sliced
  • ⅔ cup maple syrup
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup 1% milk, (see tip below)
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider
  • ½ tsp cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 8 Tbsp peanut butter, divided
  • Honey, for drizzling (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp butter
How To Do It

1. Prepare apple syrup. Add diced apple, maple syrup and a pinch of salt to a saucepan over medium-high heat. Let it simmer, lower heat so the ingredients bubble and let cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Save time by making this ahead. Refrigerate overnight for best results. Serve chilled or warmed over your french toast.

2. Beat milk with eggs, apple cider, cinnamon, vanilla, ground ginger, and a nice pinch of salt in a measuring cup. Pour into a bowl or pie plate. This is your french toast dip.

3. Spread peanut butter on your bread, 4 slices. Top each with sliced thing apple (nobody likes a chunky french toast) drizzle with honey (for extra sweet french toast, if desired) and add a sprinkle of cinnamon. Create a french toast sandwich with the other 4 slices of bread and press together.

4. Get butter melted in a large skillet over medium heat. Soak andwiches in the french toast dip on each side, let the extra drip off. Cook in skillet for roughly 6 minutes on each side, should be browned and warm throughout. Cut your french toast into halves and serve with your apple syrup.
