Cream Cheese and Apple Stuffed French Toast

Well, we are now into our last official week of summer vacation and I am definitely not ready to see these summer days come to an end.  I know that there are still a few weeks left before the start of fall, but once school goes back, I really feel like summer has ended.   So with back to school looming, I decided to have an impromptu family brunch out on our patio this weekend and made up some of this yummy stuffed french toast…

Filling
