MY REVIEW

I haven't tried this recipe but it sounds delicious. I just wanted to say that we used to make something similar in our local Brownie & Girl Guide campouts. Instead of the filling here, we'd spread the bread thickly with applesauce. Can also make like grilled cheese instead of French toast. Butter outside of bread, spread apple sauce between the slices and fry until golden.

Oh, so yummy & very filling! Next time, I might add a little cinnamon to the egg mixture to make it a little more like French toast. I've also made these using the apple pie filling that I canned. Just as good!

Yum! I will admit that I was a little skeptical when I saw this on the web and my little one wanted to try it. We did try it and loved it. I made it again over the weekend and added a very thin slice of cheddar cheese in the sandwich and oh my it was good. Thank you for submitting this recipe!
