Apple season is upon us, and I have a lot of apples to cook with. Skillet Apple Pie toast is a quick way to use up those apples before they go bad. Plus, it is takes under 10 minutes to cook, allowing you to make it before work or school and after a work out (or a late night out!).
Skillet Apple Pie Toast Inspo
I absolutely love fancy toast. The fancier the better. I recently saw a recipe for unicorn toast - like what?! If you have followed me on Instagram, prior to my blogging day, you will see all the toast posts. And, even after I began blogging, I still go strong with the toast posts. Here are some other fancy toast blog posts: Tomato and Chive Post, Peaches and Blackberry Toast, Walnut Pesto Toast, and Sweet and Savory Toast.
So, since it's the fall, I figured I would add some apples to my toast. Peanut Butter Apple toast is so overdone (not that it's bad, I love PB Apple toast), so I wanted to think outside the box. This recipe idea actually came to me while making skillet hashbrowns. I know - weird!
This is a great recipe if you are seeking an apple pie taste, without all the extra stuff!
Bread. I used sourdough bread because it is my favorite, but you can use any type you'd like.
Apples. I used half of a granny smith apple and ½ of a pink lady apple for this recipe. I enjoy the tartness of the granny, and it paired well with my pink lady.
Cream Cheese. I used plain cream cheese from Tofutti! It is my favorite cream cheese, other than Kite Hill and Trader Joes.
Maple Syrup. Be sure you are using high quality maple syrup. You can substitute this for 2 tbsp of sugar. Cooking time may vary.
Brown Sugar. Perfect to sweetening up the apples. You may sub coconut sugar for this.
Coconut Oil. Used to sauté the apples in. You may sub vegan butter for this as well.
Pecans. Nuts are optional, but highly recommended.
Cinnamon. No sub for this. Essential to spice up this toast.
All Spice. Again, no sub. You do not need this ingredient, but I recommend it.
Salt. I used sea salt. It helped balance the flavors.
Caramel Drizzle (optional - I used this recipe). This just made it much more fun.
Making the Toast
This toast is easy as can be to make. First, cut up your apples into small pieces. Then, add coconut oil to your skillet over medium heat. Next, add in your cut up apples and allow them to cook for approx 4 minutes. While the apples are cooking, toast your bread in your toaster! Once the apples are semi tender, add in the the spices, brown sugar, nuts and maple syrup. Sauté for another 2 minutes then take off heat. Once the toast is done toasting, smear cream cheese on it, add the apple mixture on top of that and you're done! Option to drizzle on some caramel sauce or whip cream!
