Stuffed French Toastiness

Want a comfort food breakfast that’s different from the usual Saturday breakfast food?  Try stuffing your french toast with something!

We had a big family breakfast this weekend for Easter and my husband and I were in charge of making two dishes.  He made eggs benedict (which I should really blog one day as he describes his benedict sauce as “the best I’ve ever tasted”) and I made my first attempt of stuffing bread with sweet goodness.

Here’s what I did it:

  • Cut a loaf of French Bread into thick slices
  • Cut a hole in the bread from on of the sides
  • Fill with about a teaspoon of cream cheese (I used light strawberry) and about a Tbsp berries (I used strawberries.)  I would recommend previously frozen berries, drained and slightly mashed.
  • Dip the bread into a mixture of 4 eggs and 1/2 cup milk
  • Fry the bread for about four minutes on either side.  I fried mine on an oiled griddle with  the temp set to 350 or so
  • Put the bread in a slightly heated oven until breakfast is ready
  • Take bread out and sprinkle with icing sugar.

Et voila! 

In the mood for something even sweeter? Put a couple milk chocolate chips inside the bread before frying.  Or change it up by trying other fruit besides berries — bananas? Someone at breakfast even suggested stuffing the bread with other breakfasty food, like bacon an eggs (not sure if I’d do that)

    Yum! This looks delicious. I absolutely love interesting riffs on French toast. I am wondering if it would be easier to fill the bread before slicing?
