Preparation time: 25 min
- Foie gras
Season both sides of the foie gras slices. Heat a non-stick pan, and sear in it the foie gras slices 1 minute on each side than transfer them on a baking sheet, deglaze the pan with port wine and let reduce, until a syrupy consistency. You can bake the foie gras 1 minute in the oven before putting it on the plate.

Peel the apples, cut into quarters, remove the heart and slice in half again. In a hot pan, add the butter and brown sugar. Add the apple slices and brown them on each side.

In a brioche, cut thick slices about 2 cm then make 12 pieces of 6 cm * 2 cm then dip them in the previously made mixture. In a skillet over medium heat, add three knobs of butter, lightly drain your pieces of brioche and fry them, Make sure you get a golden brown color on each sides. Just bake them in the oven 2 minutes before serving.
