Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Um, yum! Start your day off richly with this fruity breakfast sandwich. I can't wait to try it with peach pie filling too!


2 large
1/2 c
whole milk
1/4 tsp
ground cinnamon
4 slice
raisin bread (wonder is best)
1/2 c
apple pie filling
1 Tbsp
additional butter
powered sugar (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large baking dish, whisk eggs, milk and cinnamon, set aside. Make 2 sandwiches with the bread and apple pie filling. Place sandwiches into egg mixture. Let soak until egg mixture is completely absorbed into the bread, turning sandwiches once. Takes about 3 minutes.
On a griddle over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Cook sandwiches on the griddle until brown and heated through, about 4 minutes per side. Cut each sandwich in half. Transfer to plates and serve with additional butter. Top with powdered sugar if desired.

Wendy,I thought the same! Use egg substitute, fat free milk, and plain applesauce. Cook with spray oil. There, you have trimmed off a lot of calories. I really enjoy these recipes, everyone is so creative. I just have to tweak some of the calories out! Loralee

I am wondering how it would be to add a slice of cheddar cheese for balance and make it a great brunch offering.

Oh I think the addition of cheese would be very complimentary to an already scrumptious sounding recipe!!!

I used to make something similar around 35 years ago for my young children. I didn't use pie filling, but put cheddar cheese slices, bacon or split lengthwise sausage links in a sandwich, dipped into the egg mixture to soak up; then cooked them on a griddle just like grilled cheese sandwiches. I served them cut into four pieces (squares) and served them with warm maple syrup for dipping. My kids just loved them!
