Stuffed French toast

Breakfast time! Breakfast time!

I was inspired after watching an episode of "Throwdown with Bobby Flay" featuring stuffed French toast and decided to take a crack at it and put my own spin on the dish.

I used sliced whole wheat bread but the best French toast is made from sliced up challah, which makes this the perfect Sunday brunch item as you use up your leftover challah from Shabbat. Thicker breads tend to make better French toast, but if you don't have any on hand, you can still use the regular packaged stuff.

Here we go!

Stuffed French toast

1 large egg
1 tbs butter
1/4 cup vanilla soy milk
4 slices bread
Strawberry flavored cream cheese

Scramble your egg and mix in the soy milk to make your batter. Make a cream cheese sandwich with the sliced bread and cream cheese and then dunk them in the egg mixture until they are coated. Shake off the excess.

Melt the butter in a large frying pan until it is frothy, but don't let it brown. Place the egg-coated sandwiches in the pan and brown on both sides. Keep a close on it to get a rich, brown color.

Plate the French toast and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and drizzle with maple syrup.

You'll get a hint of vanilla flavor, the great flavor of regular French toast, and a burst of flavor from the cream cheese. Very simple and very tasty. Makes a great breakfast or brunch for friends.

  1. I agree re challah being best-not sure I would even bother using regular bread
