Blue Ribbon Recipe

French apple raisin breakfast sandwiches are a nice twist on French toast. Cinnamon-raisin bread is the base for this French toast. It soaks up the egg mixture and crisps up when griddled. Apple pie filling is sandwiched in between each slice of bread. We loved biting into the French toast sandwich and tasting the juicy bursts of apple. These breakfast sandwiches are fun for a weekend or holiday breakfast.

How To Make french apple raisin breakfast sandwiches

  • Eggs, milk, and cinnamon whisked together in a bowl.
    In a large baking dish, whisk eggs, milk, and cinnamon; set aside.
  • Apple pie filling placed on a piece of cinnamon raisin bread.
    Make 2 sandwiches with the bread and apple pie filling.
  • Sandwich soaking in egg mixture.
    Place sandwiches into egg mixture. Let soak until egg mixture is completely absorbed into the bread, turning sandwiches once. Takes about 3 minutes.
  • Frying a sandwich in butter on a griddle.
    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.
  • Fried sandwiches ready to be cut in half.
    Cut each sandwich in half. Transfer to plates and serve with additional butter. Top with powdered sugar, if desired.
