Apple Pie Toast

PYcnWM4c.jpg

You know those morning where you want something cozy, comforting, and a little sweet for breakfast? We got you. We know what you’re really wanting is a warm slice of pie, but let’s be honest, we know we can’t eat that most mornings. In comes our Apple Pie Toast, which is dare we say it better than eating actual pie for breakfast?! We toasted some break in the cast iron skillet, smeared some Mascarpone cheese on it, and topped it with our Spiced Apple jam, granola, and an apple slice. A little savory, a little sweet, a lot satisfying.

Now if you don’t know anything about our Spiced Apple jam, it’s basically apple pie in a jar. With a flavor complex similar to apple butter, but all the spices you’d find in an apple pie. Check out what’s in it in our picture below.

• Ginger

Apple Pie Toast

To create 1 piece of toast you'll need:

• 1 slice of multi grain bread
• 1/4 cup of olive oil
• 1 Tb Mascarpone cheese
• 1 Tb Spiced Apple Jam
• 1 Tb granola
• thinly sliced granny smith apples
• cast iron skillet

Instructions:

1. Heat up your cast iron skillet on medium high.
2. Now add 1/4 cup of olive oil to the pan.
3. Fry both sides of the bread slice until toasted and brown. It takes me close to 5 minutes per side. (NOTE: If you are making more than 1 piece of toast you will need to keep adding 1/4 cup of olive oil in the pan before each slice of toast goes in)
4. After the bread is fried smear the Mascarpone cheese all over it.
5. Next top the Mascarpone cheese with the Spiced Apple jam, granola, and apples.
6. Add a dash of cinnamon and enjoy!

TOAST TUESDAY! Goat Cheese Grapes + Thyme

fullsizeoutput_2e03.jpeg

There is nothing I love more than the combination of sweet and savory all wrapped up together in a dish that is texturally soft and crunchy all at the same time. This toast just does it for me! I have combined fried bread, that has a crunch like no other, soft goat cheese, decadent sweet Chai Red Grape jam, herbaceous thyme and topped if with some fresh grapes for contrast! It truly was such a delicious breakfast treat! Get the full recipe below!

To create 1 piece of toast you'll need:

  • 1 slice of multi-grain wheat bread
  • 2 Tb olive oil (unless you just want to toast your bread in an oven)
  • 1 Tb goat cheese
  • 1 Tb Chai Red Grape Jam
  • 1 Ts fried pancetta
  • Fresh Thyme
  • A handful of fresh grapes

A cast iron skillet or a toaster

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your cast iron skillet on medium.
  2. After the skillet is heated up add olive oil, then fry the bread on both sides. This takes about 3-5 minutes per side. You could also just toast it in the oven or toaster!
  3. Put toast aside and then fry up pancetta in the skillet. I fry a whole pack of it and then use it through out the week.
  4. On your toast layer goat cheese, Chai Red Grape Jam, pancetta, thyme and fresh grapes cut in half length wise.
  5. Enjoy!

Toast Tuesday! French Toast w/ Whipped Cream + Jam

fullsizeoutput_2c8a.jpeg

Hand made whipped cream is basically the most delicious thing you'll ever taste in your life and I'm only being mildly dramatic. One of the things I didn't know until today (when I talked our lady Jamie into making some for us) is just how much better it is than pre-made whipped cream! Jamie only used a bowl and a whisk to whip it up and watching the cream transform was straight magic! It tastes oh so good with jam on top of french toast! French toast always seemed like something that required a lot of time to make, but we ended up frying up 5 pieces and whipped the cream all in about 10 minutes! Find the recipe below!

fullsizeoutput_2c8d.jpeg

To create 1 piece of toast you'll need:

For the whipped cream you need:

  • 3 Cups of heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 Ts Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 Cups powdered sugar

You'll need a whisk, a bowl and a cast iron skillet.

Instructions:

  1. First, to make the home made whipped cream all you need to do is add the heavy cream, vanilla extract and powdered sugar into a medium sized mixing bowl and begin to whisk it aggressively! It takes about 10 minutes or so to whisk it into whipped cream! You can also use a hand held mixer or stand up mixer, but honestly just a whisk and a bowl and a little elbow grease will do! This recipe will make about a quart of whipped cream!
  2. Next preheat your cast iron skillet and make sure it's seasoned well. If not add a little bit of olive oil to it! Make sure it doesn't get too hot!
  3. In a mixing bowl add egg, brown sugar, heavy cream, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Whisk together! 
  4. Next add the slice of bread and let it soak in the egg mixture.
  5. Add the eggy toast to your skillet and fry for about 3-5 minutes until each side is brown! 
  6. Top with whipped cream and your choice of jam! We used Strawberry Balsamic + Cracked Pepper and Blueberry Lavender Vanilla!
  7. Enjoy!
