One of my favorite things!

OK, two posts in two days! has to be a record!
To nights post is about "One of my Favorite Things"
As you know, I like to cook and bake and all that! And this being my day off, I'm normally at Terri's house helping to cook dinner. Tonight Mark and Terri are at a Christmas Party. So that left me up to my own devices. Could of had a bowl of ice cream and be done with it!. But not tonight! I made up a meal right from my own head! Want to guess what it was?


                                                    Got it yet?

I'll give you a hint. It involved Bread, Eggs, Milk, Peanut butter, Cinnamon, Apple sauce  and a deep fryer!

                                                      OK, here it is.

                                                       Waite for it!

                                                       Just a little more!

                                                       Peanut Butter and Apple sauce stuffed French Toast!

Say that 3 times real fast! But it was so good with a little whip cream on top! Had my dinner and desert all at the same time! With a couple eggs on the side!
I know, I know, That's not very healthy and a lot of fat. But BOY O BOY, YUM!!!!

So do you want to know how I did it?

First take 2 heaping spoon fulls of Peanut Butter (I used chunky) and 2 heaping spoon fulls of apple sauce and mix them well in a small bowl.

Take 3 eggs and separate out the yoke's. Place them in a bowl and the White's in another bowl. Whip the egg white till stiff peaks form and add a little sugar.

To the yoke's, add a little milk, sugar and cinnamon. Whisk until well combined and then fold in the egg White's.

Take 4 slices of bread (I used farm house white) and make two Peanut butter and Apple sauce sandwiches.
Cut them on the diagonal and then place the half sandwich into the batter, letting it soak for 15 - 20 seconds each side.

I have a "Fry Daddy" and its the right size for me alone. I make sure it is good and hot. Place the first half in the fryer and cook until golden, flip and brown the other side. When I take it out of the fryer, I drain it on a clean dish cloth (No paper towels for this guy!)
Continue to cook until all halfs are done.

Plate it up. Top it with a little whip cream and maybe a little chocolate sauce!
I'm so full!

You know, I think I could write a cook book!
How's this for a title?

                                   Things you should eat, Only once a year! (If That!).

Think I'm going to be sick (HIC).
Excuse me!


  1. Oh. My. Goodness.

    Are you still there or have you slipped into a sugar-induced diabetic coma??

  2. Carolyn,
    Yep still here! I was a little spun up from all the sugar. But it was so worth it! I wonder how much "Holiday Weight" I put on last night?

  3. Keep that up and we'll have to intervene! It's good to know you have that pioneering spirit when it comes to cooking. A true adventurer!

  4. Susan,
    You think so? That's one of the advantages of being single! No one to say "No, you can not do that". And frown when do.
    Merry Christmas!!

  5. Wow Tom. That sounds wildly delicious. I think you could write a cookbook too, in fact, I say go for it!

  6. Leigh,
    I would get to be 400 lbs after I tried all the meals I would come up with! Couldn't waddle down the stairs!
    Hope you have a great Christmas!
