Apple-Bourbon Stuffed French Toast in the Deep Fryer

It's time to throw all those New Year's Resolutions out the window. This decadent breakfast dish is well-worth it! Bourbon infused apples & sweet cream cheese filling stuffed between two thick slices of brioche, smothered in batter, then deep fried — What's not to like about that?!

Serves 4

- Ingredients - 

4 slices thick-cut brioche

Apple Filling
2 apples
1 tablespoon bourbon
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cream Filling
3 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 cup flour
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup milk

For Frying
12 cups vegetable oil

- Tools - 
Weston Deep Fryer
Weston Apple Peeler

Fill your Deep Fryer with oil and preheat to 350°F.

Use your Apple Peeler to core and slice the apples. Combine apple filling ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes.

Whip together ingredients for the cream cheese filling, then set aside.

Whisk together ingredients for batter and set aside.

Once the apples are done, place a heaping spoonful of them onto a slice of bread, along with a generous slather of cream cheese filling. Place another slice of bread over the filling. Place the stuffed bread into the bowl of batter and use a spatula to gently cover the entire stack in batter. Make sure that any apples that are protruding from the middle of the bread slices are completely covered by batter as well. You don't want any part of the french toast to be 'naked' when it goes into the deep fryer.

Place the stuffed bread into the fryer basket, then gently lower into the Deep Fryer. Fry 5 minutes on each side, or until the batter is golden brown.

Repeat for remaining bread.  

Once all french toast has been fried, make a diagonal cut through the middle so that you have two triangles. Serve each person a triangle.
