Recipe: Apple, Pear and Walnut Stuffed French Toast

Rank: Easy

Time execution: 1 hr 10 min

Can be served for: 12 slices


  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 Gala apples, peeled, cored and chopped

  • 2 pear, peeled, cored and chopped

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts

  • 2/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 dozen large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 3 cups whole milk

  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 2 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 3 teaspoons grated nutmeg

  • 2/3 teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

  • 2 day-old (or slightly older) loaf challah bread, cut into 2-inch-thick slices

  • 8 tablespoons (2 stick) unsalted butter, for cooking

  • Pure maple syrup, warmed, for serving


  1. For the fruit-nut mixture: Mix the butter with the apples, pears, walnuts and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Refrigerate to chill briefly.

  2. For the French toast: Meanwhile, in a large flat dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and vanilla.

  3. Make a deep slice from the side into the center of each bread slice to form a pocket. Stuff a couple spoonfuls of the fruit-nut mixture into each piece (reserve any leftover fruit-nut mixture for serving). Dip the stuffed bread in the egg mixture to moisten on both sides (but not so much that the bread falls apart).

  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and melt 2 tablespoon of butter. In batches, add the stuffed bread and cook until golden brown, flipping gently, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Continue cooking the remaining bread, adding additional butter as needed.

  5. Put the extra fruit-nut mixture in the skillet and cook a few minutes over medium heat, just to soften the fruit. Spoon over the French toast and serve with warm maple syrup.

Truth hurts! Nothing is perfect, life is messy. Relationship are complex. Outcomes are uncertain, people are irrational.
