This smoked apple and Boursin French toast is a sure fire way to elevate your brunch this spring. Sweet, creamy, and just an absolute show stopper. You are absolutely going to want to make this one to impress the ones you love. 

French toast to me is at the top of the brunch pyramid. And this Smoked Apple & Boursin Stuffed French Toast is totally next level. I started by dicing up some green apples and tossing them in some cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. I tossed the apple mixture into a hot pan and sautéed until soft. At the very end I added a half shot of brandy just for additional flavour and caramelization, but that is optional. The last step I did with the Apple compote was to lightly smoke it using my smoking gun. This is a fun, cheffy tool to have around the house to quickly impart Smokey flavours into dishes. 

For this Smoked Apple & Boursin Stuffed French Toast I used a very thick cut of fresh sour dough. One these piece is cut I carrot sliced a “poach” in the middle using a bread knife. Basically just cut 75% the way through the middle of the bread. From there I layered on the apple and maple Boursin and then the smoked apple compote. 

Once you have the bread stuffed, you just make regular French toast from there! Dip the bread in a cinnamon egg mixture and then fry both sides golden brown. Top with maple syrup and that’s it!!
