Apple Butter Stuffed French Toast

Apple Butter Stuffed French Toast at The Happy Housewife
By contributing writer Andrea Green

French toast is one of my favorite breakfasts to make. Adding apple butter to make Apple Butter Stuffed French Toast makes this French toast taste just like fall.

My oldest daughter does not like eggs. French toast is my way of sneaking an egg in because it seems that after having an egg at breakfast, they don’t get hungry again as quickly. Have you found that?

When you stuff your french toast with apple butter, you don’t need to add any maple syrup on top. I did shake a little powdered sugar over the top to make it look pretty. But trust me, it is plenty sweet without it.

You’ll get an extra boost of fall flavor by adding apple pie spice to the egg batter. If you don’t have any on hand, it is easy to mix up a batch of homemade apple pie spice. Or, to be really simple, just add some cinnamon.

I like to use whole sweeteners in my recipes, so I use maple syrup in the batter. Feel free to substitute sugar if that’s what you have on hand.
