I love French toast. A LOT. So it’s a wonder that I’ve only recently become enamored with stuffed French toast. It makes me sad to think of all those years without stuffed French toast in my life. There was a hole in my heart and I didn’t even know it!
The best part of stuffed French toast is that it’s super easy to make. And, when you do stuff your French toast, everyone in your family will think you’re a fancy-schmancy chef. Not only will you end up with a delicious breakfast, but everyone will think you’re super awesome. (Because you are.)
Here is how to stuff French toast it’s a snap!
1. Slice your bread into thick slices.
2. Cut a pocket into the thick slice of bread, cutting about halfway down the bread slice (as pictured below). As you pull your knife out of the bread on the final cut, when the tip enters the slice, angle the tip down towards the uncut portion of the bread to make the pocket in the bread a little deeper, without cutting through or having the edges of the cut go lower than halfway down the slice.
3. Fill the pocket with good things to eat Nutella, sweetened cream cheese or mascarpone cheese, fresh fruit, coconut, fruit preserves or jam, nuts, whatever! The sky’s the limit! My new favorite flavor combo is cream cheese and bananas (click here for the full recipe).
4. Dip the stuffed slices of bread in your egg mixture and cook the French toast like normal. Then dig in!
