  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ tablespoons milk

  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence, or to taste

  • 4 slices day-old artisan-style bread

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup fresh spinach, or to taste

  • ½ Granny Smith apple, cored and thinly sliced

  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese, or to taste


  1. Whisk eggs, milk, and herbes de Provence together in a bowl until smooth. Dip 1 slice bread in the egg mixture until evenly soaked.

  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook the dipped bread until slightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer bread to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat dipping bread in egg mixture and cooking in the skillet with remaining slices.

  3. Cook and stir spinach in the same skillet over medium heat until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Layer spinach on top of 2 slices of French toast; top with apple slices and Cheddar cheese. Place a piece of French toast over Cheddar cheese layer creating a sandwich.

Cook's Note:

Italian seasoning or any desired dried herb mix can be substituted for the herbes de Provence.
