We love french toast at our house pretty much for any meal. A few weeks ago after a long day it was breakfast for dinner day and we made this stuffed french toast. I only had wheat bread which isn't our preferred slice for this meal but it was still good and "healthy"ish. It's possible the cream cheese and powdered sugar negated all healthy but I'm going to pretend that I don't know that.
This is more of a method than a recipe. I think it would be delicious with PB and bananas or even Nutella and raspberries. Use what you like. If you are super ambitious coat the sandwiches in Cap'n Crunch after they are dipped in egg. Yum.....I may need to have some right now!
Easy Stuffed French Toast
bread (we prefer Texas Toast but anything will do)
1/2 c.ish milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
whipped cream cheese
1 cup raspberries
1/8-1/4 c. sugar
Make your "sandwiches" with the cream cheese and preserves. In a small sauce pan combine berries and sugar. Heat to a gentle bubble and cook until berries break down and a syrup forms. Set aside.
Preheat a large skillet over med heat. Melt a couple tablespoons of butter in the hot pan.
In a medium bowl mix the eggs, milk, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and vanilla. Dip each sandwich in mixture until coated on both sides.
Place the sandwiches in the pan and brown on both sides. Don't walk away and get distracted by something else (this is my normal MO).
Serve french toast with additional berries, syrup or powdered sugar.
