My inspiration for this idea came to me when I was in the store yesterday and I saw the package of Pillsbury Apple Turnover on the shelf. Then it hit me “Mmm mmmm apple stuffed French Toast! I’m gonna try it!” You see, I love French Toast in all forms, especially stuffed, but I don’t enjoy having to go to a restaurant to satisfy my cravings. Then I figured if they can do it, so can I.
When I got home I scrambled to my laptop to Google “Apple Turnover French Toast” thinking for sure someone has had to come with this idea before…aannnd nothing. Yup, nada! I found Apple Turnover recipes and variations of Apple French Toast recipes, but the exact search I was looking for was the combination of the Apple Turnover and French Toast for one masterpiece of deliciousness. Being me and not willing to giving up the idea, I went ahead with my creation. So, to the best of my knowledge, I present to the world the first ever Apple Turnover Cinnamon French Toast!
- 1 package Pillsbury Apple Turnovers
- 2 Tbs. Butter or Margarine
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- Cookie Sheet
- Medium Pan
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Prepare and bake the turnovers according to the directions on the package.
Set your pan to low on the stove, I used 2 on my stove. Add butter or margarine to melt in the pan to prevent sticking.
While the pan is warming up, place the eggs in the bowl, add the vanilla and scramble well. Dash the cinnamon on top of the egg mixture. Mix gently, but just enough to make a slight swirl in the egg mixture.
Dip your turnover in the egg mixture, enough to lightly coat almost like a glaze on the pastry, but do not allow it to get soggy.
Keep in mind: the trick to this is slow & low, with gentle hands. Place your turnover in the pan and rotate often making sure every angle gets cooked. Be gentle with the tongs to keep from smashing the pastry.
When the egg mixture appears to be cooked on all sides and the pastry is golden, remove from the pan.
Drizzle the frosting on your turnover French toast to your hearts desire!
Drizzle with warm syrup, serve and enjoy!
