Cinnamon-Apple Stuffed French Toast

Your breakfast might never be the same again – not after you try this! I have to admit, this was a complete experiment but it turned out SO good. I couldn’t wait to share it here.

I’ve wanted to come up with a fun, new breakfast option for us for awhile, so this was a fun tackle. And probably the most tasty one yet!

Cinnamon-Apple Stuffed French Toast

  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 2 apples, peeled and cubed
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 2 t. cinnamon
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 12 slices thick, hearty bread (I used a whole wheat sandwich-cut bread. The bread needs to be hearty enough to stand up to the filling.)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 T. vanilla
  • 1/4 t. cinnamon
  • Extra butter for the skillet

1. Melt 1/4 c. butter in a small skillet. Add apples, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook 5-8 minutes until apples start getting tender.
2. In a bowl, add cream cheese and apple mixture. Stir until well combined. (This can be made the night before and kept refrigerated.)
3. Add about 2 T. filling to the center of one piece of bread. Spread out a little but don’t go all the way to the edges. Top with another slice of bread to make a sandwich. Repeat with all.

4. Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Dip sandwiches in egg mixture as you would for regular French toast. Cook in a hot, greased skillet, 3-4 minutes per side.

  2. Yummmmy! I have to try this. Great experiment! I need to experiment more, but things never turn out for me. Thanks for the instructions!

  3. Well, goodness me. I am salivating just looking at the picture. Great job and thanks for sharing the recipe with us!

  4. Those look amazing!! I don’t think I will even try making them – or else I will want them all the time. I think I will save them for the next breakfast we have with company.

  5. My first time (and not my last) to your blog. I am so impressed! That looks so yummy – and so professional!

  6. This looks so delicious. I can’t wait to try it. I posted an Apple Cinnamon Crepe recipe in my blog that you might be interested in. It’s in the sidebar on the right.

    Thanks for posting this recipe. 🙂

  7. This looks too delicious. I am definitely going to have to make this for my family. We love french toast, and this apple and cream cheese combination looks so good. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.

  8. I was delighted when I found your recipe because I had already been doing something similar having had a stuffed french toast years ago at a B&B, but it was peaches and Pecans with cream cheese. For my apple cinnamon I use French or Italian bread slices, which was what they had used at the B&B….it is wonderful…and I use Granny Smith apples..the tart is great to off set the sweet of the maple syrup!

  9. use texas toast (or any bread inch thick) …. cut slit in side, through crust (horizontal) all the way to the center making a pocket. careful not to go through the top or bottom to keep mixture IN the bread)
    mince the apples a little more.. put in pipping bag (or zip lock & cut an end off) and squeeze into the pocket… then grill… oh yeah then top with Apple Butter… NUM!!
