Bacon-Apple-Pecan Stuffed French Toast

Bacon-Apple-Pecan Stuffed French Toast...that's a mouthful. Stuffed with bacon, apples, pecans, and mascarpone, it's a Sunday morning party for your taste buds!
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of thick bread (like Texas toast)
  • ¼ of an apple, cored, and sliced into ¼" slices
  • 3 strips thick-cut bacon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoon pecans, crumbled into small pieces
  • 2 oz mascarpone (or cream cheese)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Instructions

  • Preheat toaster oven to 400°F. 
  • Place bacon and apple slices on a foil-lined baking sheet and sprinkle both with brown sugar and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Then add pecans, making sure they get into some of that rich bacon fat in the pan, and bake for another 3 minutes. 
  • Remove from oven and roughly chop the bacon into smaller pieces. 
  • Assemble the stuffed french toast. First, spread a layer of mascarpone (or cream cheese) on both slices of bread. Then, layer remaining ingredients (apple slices, bacon, and pecans), and add the second slice of bread on top, like a sandwich.
  • Preheat a pan on the stove to medium heat. 
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg and milk.
  • Dip one side of the “sandwich” into the egg mixture, then flip and dip the other side as well.
  • Place in the preheated pan and cook for about two minutes per side. Serve with maple syrup. Bon appétit!
