  1. Begin by whisking 2-3 eggs in a bowl until they are beautifully blended.
  2. Add a splash of milk and a pinch of cinnamon to the whisked eggs
  3. Take your Mercier Orchards apple fritter and cut it into slices, each one about 1 inch thick.
  4. Dip each slice of apple fritter into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides thoroughly. Be sure to flip the bread, allowing it to soak up the flavors evenly
  5. Prepare your trusty sauté pan by greasing it with a light layer of pan spray or butter

  7. After approximately 1 minute, flip the bread slices, revealing a golden hue on the cooked side. Cook for an additional 1 and a half minutes
  8. Flip the slices once again, allowing them to cook for another minute, until the French toast is warmed through and the coating has firmed up
  9. Finish with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or a generous dusting of cinnamon sugar topping
