Stuffed French Toast with Fried Apples
makes 6-8 large slices french toast

loaf of unsliced bread (we used cranberry walnut bread)
4 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
4 T sugar
1 tsp vanilla

6 oz mascarpone cheese
1 tsp cinnamon
2 T sugar
1 tsp vanilla

2 T butter
3 apples, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp cinnamon

maple syrup
whipped cream (optional)

Mix together marscapone, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla. Set aside.

Slice the end off of the loaf of bread. Cut the next slice 1/2 inch thick and only 3/4 of the way through the loaf (forming a pocket), and cut the next 1/2 inch slice all the way through. Repeat until you have 6-8 pocketed slices.

Carefully spread mascarpone filling into each slice of bread, pressing the edges to seal slightly.

In a pie plate or large shallow bowl, whisk togetehr eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla. Dip each slice of stuffed bread into the egg mixture, turning to coat.

Preheat a nonstick griddle over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter, and swirl to coat the griddle. When butter foams, add as many pieces of french toast as will fit without crowding the griddle. Cook until browned, about 4-5 minutes on each side, turning once. Remove from the griddle and keep warm.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet. When the butter foams, add apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and continue to cook until apples are just tender.

Serve French toast with apples and maple syrup. Top with whipped cream (if desired).
