Description

This yummy french toast is stuffed with farmer cheese and apples. It’s the perfect Fall breakfast topped with warm maple syrup. Plus it’s ready in 15 minutes, crazy!!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons coconut oil, divided
  • 1 large firm apple, such as Cortland, Crispin, or Honey Crisp, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, dark or amber, plus more for serving (optional)
  • 1/4 cup farmer cheese or ricotta
  • 1 tablespoon maple sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup non-fat milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 slices soft wheat sandwich bread

Instructions

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add apple slices in a single layer and cook, undisturbed until the bottoms are browning, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drizzle on 2 tablespoons maple syrup, turn the apples with a spatula to coat, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 1 to 3 minutes longer, until syrup is reduced and caramelized and apples are tender. Set aside in the skillet.
  2. Stir farmer chees and maple sugar in a small dish to combine.
  3. Whisk egg, milk, and cinnamon in a wide, shallow dish. Add bread to mixture two pieces at a time, turning once with clean hands or a spatula to coat both sides. Transfer to a plate to wait for the skillet. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. (See below for alternative griddle method.) Add two slices bread. Cook uncovered about 2 minutes, until bottoms are browned. Flip bread with a spatula and top one slice with half the apples and cheese. Cook about 2 minutes longer, until bottoms are browned. Top the layered toast with the plain toast, sandwich style, and transfer to a plate. Serve with additional syrup (if using). Repeat with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil, bread, and cheese, adjusting heat to medium-low to prevent the bread from burning.

Notes

For large griddle: Heat griddle to medium heat. Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Add bread and cook about 2 minutes, until the bottoms are browned. Flip bread with a spatula and top two slices with apples and farmer cheese. Continue cooking, about 2 minutes, until the bottoms are browned. Top the stuffed pieces of toast with the plain pieces, sandwich style, and transfer to two plates. Drizzle with additional maple syrup (if using).
