I slept-in pretty good on Sunday and struggled with whether or not to make french toast, or grilled cheese. It was technically brunch-time so you could go either way, but why have to settle? It dawned on me that I could just turn my french toast into grilled cheese. By doing so, I don’t need to forego the sweetness of french toast, or the cheesy goodness of grilled cheese.
All I have to say about this french toast grilled cheese sandwich is mmm-mmm-mmm!!! It was a home run for sure! The apples still stay a bit crisp, and it compliments the soft, cream cheese and caramel sauce very well. If apples and caramel aren’t your thing, you could try brie and cranberries, perhaps? Sounds like that could be a delicious combo too, what do you think?
I’ve recently subscribed to the Chef box from Foodie Pages. The March box was bacon themed and I received plenty of fabulous bacon flavored items. Once of the items was a bacon caramel sauce and I used it for this recipe. The caramel sauce was sweet, with a subtle smokey bacon flavor. It’s hard not to just eat it with a spoon.
