FRENCH TOAST SANDWICHES with Peaches and Mozzarella
recipe and photo excerpted from Yummy Supper: 100 fresh, luscious & honest recipes from a {gluten-free} omnivore 

Sandwiched between two slices of French toast, peaches get juicy and sweet in the hot oven, and are oh so good with warm, melty mozzarella. Add a drizzle of maple syrup . . . yum! 

While I am partial to the peach and mozz combination, you can make these sandwiches with all sorts of other fillings—baking French toast is an easy way to feed a crowd for breakfast or brunch. In the winter, try sliced pears with mozzarella or even Parmesan. You can also stuff your French toast sandwiches with jam and cream cheese any time of year. 

INGREDIENTS makes 4
  • 2 eggs
  • 1cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup, plus more, warm, for serving
  • 1teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Sprinkle of ground cinnamon
  • 8 slices sandwich bread {GF folks: I particularly like Canyon Bakehouse 7 Grain Bread here}
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 3–4 ounces fresh buffalo or cow’s milk mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 1 peach, pitted and sliced into 16 thin wedges 
  
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Generously coat a large baking sheet with butter. In a wide shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon.


Submerge each slice of bread in the eggy batter for 30 seconds or so. You want to coat the bread but not let it get soggy. Place all 8 slices of battered bread onto your greased baking sheet. Bake in the hot oven for 10 minutes. 
  
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and flip all the slices of bread. Tuck a nub (teaspoon or so) of butter under each slice of toast before returning the baking sheet to the oven. Top half of the bread slices with a layer of mozzarella and four peach wedges. Continue to bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until all the toast is golden brown and the mozzarella is nice and melty. 

Assemble the sandwiches and generously drizzle warm maple syrup over the top. Serve right away.
