Peanut Butter - Apple French Toast
Quick, easy, nutritious and delish!

8 slices bread- FROZEN
1 granny smith apple, cored and thinly sliced
Peanut butter (smooth works best)
margarine or butter

Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on one side of each piece of bread (this is why it's best to use frozen, it spreads easier and doesn't tear up the bread.)  Place a few slices of apple between the peanut buttered sides of two pieces of bread.  Spread a small amount of margarine on the outside of the sandwich.  In frying pan treated with cooking spray, cook on each side over medium heat until golden brown (approximately 3-5 minutes). Serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or cinnamon on top.
Makes 4 servings
This recipe works well to make ahead and freeze, just omit the margarine until you are ready to cook.

Your recipe looks delicious! I love to make PB&J this way too.

Looks like grilled PB&J, rather than French toast, which would be egg dipped, right? Still delicious!

I've done tuna sandwich "souffle" - basically baked French toast with tuna salad between the layers. That would be delicious as a PB&apple "souffle"
