I mentioned this in my prior posting about the quiche. Believe it or not, stuffed french toast is amazingly easy, and soooooo good!! Here's what you'll need:
Day-old bread (not sliced as thickly as you might do for standard french toast)
Flavored cream cheese ** (very cheap at Aldi if you have one)
2 c. milk
2 t. vanilla
1/4 c. sugar
**If you don't have flavored cream cheese, or you're just plain cheap like me, you can take regular cream cheese and soften it. Whip it together with either some chopped up fruit and a bit of powdered sugar, or mix in some fruit jam of your choice. Once combined, this will serve as flavored cream cheese - and this is how I usually do it.
In a shallow bowl, beat eggs. Blend in milk, vanilla, and sugar to make your french toast batter.
Cover half the slices of bread well with flavored cream cheese. Top with remaining slices to form a "sandwich."
Dip the ENTIRE sandwich in the batter, coating both sides well.
Place on hot griddle and cook until both sides are deep golden brown.
It's just like regular french toast, but you're making it in more of a sandwich form with the flavored cream cheese. It's sooooo good!! Serve it with fresh fruit and a fruit compote or syrup. Enjoy!!!
I also slather the flavored cream cheese on toast in the morning for an even quicker breakfast. I know it isn't super healthy, but it's very yummy!! I'm going to try making bagels one of these days - I really am!
