I love french toast. I remember being a kid and being genuinely torn between french toast and pancakes on Saturday morning when
|my mom asked me what I wanted. I’ve never made stuffed french toast before, but cream cheese and jam sounds like it would be the perfect thing to stuff french toast with. I’m a huge cream cheese fan (as you can see: How to Make Chocolate Cream Cheese Cherry Brownies (oh my god!) ), I can literally just eat it whole with nothing else (I wouldn’t|
recommend that unless you’re specifically trying to become morbidly obese). I like that this is a relatively simple procedure, should be easy to do. Honestly, what it appears to be is sort of a grilled cheese sandwich, except the bread is french toast and the cheese is cream cheese…and you pour maple syrup on it at the end…and you drink Champagne with it (I would’ve gone with a mimosa, but ok whatever). I’ve also included another recipe for stuffed french toast after the video, and as a little bonus after that I’ve got a very short video on how to do something called “honeyed french toast” that looks really good, so three delicious and unique french toast recipes for you here today, enjoy.
Here’s a recipe for a similar stuffed french toast dish that I found, I’m including it since they’re a little vague about the specifics of what to do in the above video:
A special French toast with cream cheese filling, made with sliced French or Italian bread, eggs, cream cheese, and other ingredients. Serve with maple syrup or fruit topping.
* 1 long loaf French or Italian bread, about 8 to 10 ounces
* 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
* 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
* 4 large eggs
* 1/4 cup milk
* 1/4 cup water
* 3 tablespoons butter
* 1 tablespoon Canola oil
Cut bread on the diagonal into about 16 slices. Spread cream cheese on 8 slices of the bread, on one side only. Sprinkle pecans over
slices with the cream cheese spread. Top each spread slice with a plain slice of bread. You will have 8 “sandwiches.” Beat eggs and milk in a shallow bowl until smooth. Add sandwiches to the
mixture, turning several times to coat thoroughly.
Heat butter and in a heavy skillet over medium heat. When butter stops foaming, add all of the sandwiches in a single layer. Fry for about 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until golden brown and crisp. Serve with maple syrup or other fruit topping.

If you’re a true French Toast aficionado like I am, I have to recommend you pick up a copy of French Toast: Sweet & Savory Treats For Every Meal, I probably use the French Toast recipes from this book more than any other, it’s amazing what you can do with just the simple concept of French Toast and how it can be adapted, check it out.
