Apple-Stuffed French Toast

It wouldn’t be Christmas morning without this extra-sweet version French toast. I’ve tried a lot of different versions of stuffed French toasts, but this is one of my favorites.

Apple-Stuffed French Toast

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 12 slices Italian bread (1/2 inch thick)
  • 2 large tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

CARAMEL SAUCE:

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup

Directions:

In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup; cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; top with half of the pecans, a single layer of bread and remaining pecans. Arrange apples and remaining bread over the top.
   

 In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and nutmeg. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
   

 Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned.
