The gourmet grilled cheese craze and the stuffed French toast craze are ready for an arranged marriage. There are only a few steps and the ingredients are cheap, so making extra for a friend isn’t a problem. If you’re in the mood for a hearty and savory breakfast with a little sweetness to it, this will definitely do the trick. The crispy outside, fluffy inside, greasy sausage, gooey cheese and sweet apple will start your day off right. You’ll need to cut the sausages in half lengthwise while they’re raw, which is a pain, but they’ll cook much faster
– ½ cup (120 g) unsalted butter.
– 1 apple, peeled and sliced.
– 4 breakfast sausage links, halved lengthwise.
– 2 eggs.
– 1 tbsp (15 ml) milk.
– 1 tsp (4 g) grated Parmesan cheese.
– 4 thick slices challah bread.
– 4 slices cheddar cheese.
Step 2: In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon (15 g) of the butter and add the apple. Cook, stirring the apple slices every few minutes to keep them from burning or sticking, for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the sausage to the pan and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until cooked all the way through. Remove from the heat.
Step 3: While the apples and sausages are cooking, crack your eggs into a large shallow bowl or a baking pan and add the milk and Parmesan. Use a fork to mix it all up, making sure the eggs are completely broken up.
Step 4: On a baking sheet, arrange the bread slices side by side. Place a slice of cheese on each slice of bread. Divide the sausage halves between 2 of the bread slices. Arrange the apple slices over the sausage.
Step 5: Clean out the frying pan and melt another 1 tablespoon (15 g) of the butter over medium heat. Use the slices of bread topped with only cheese to cover the bread with the sausage and apples, forming 2 sandwiches.
Step 6: Pick up a sandwich and dunk each side carefully into the egg mix. Place the sandwich in the hot butter and let it brown for 1 minute. Carefully flip the sandwich, using a spatula, and let the other side brown. Take out the sandwich and put it back on the baking sheet. Melt another 1 tablespoon (15 g) of butter in the pan and brown the second sandwich. Put the baking sheet with the 2 sandwiches into the oven for 15 minutes. The bread will be crispy and the cheese will ooze. You’re ready to eat.
