Yum! Chocolate-Stuffed French Toast Recipe

Chocolate-Stuffed French Toast

Serving Size:



  • 4-ounce semi-sweet chocolate

    bar, finely chopped
  • 3 ounces Neufchatel cheese, softened
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh orange zest
  • 6 ounces Italian bread, cut on an angle into 8 (1/2″ thick) slices
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon trans-free margarine


Combine the chocolate and cheese in a small bowl; mix well. Combine the strawberries, sugar, and orange zest in a separate bowl.

Spread 1/4 of the chocolate mixture on 4 slices of bread. Top each with remaining bread and press lightly to form a sandwich.

Combine the eggs, egg whites, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Working one a time, dip both sides of each sandwich in the egg mixture and set on a plate.

Melt the margarine in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. When the foam subsides add the sandwiches and cook until golden and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Divide among 4 plates and top each with some of the strawberries. Serve immediately.
