Stuffed French Toast

Picture of Stuffed French Toast
A breakfast place near my house makes a blueberry stuffed french toast that my fiance loves. He was craving it one day when I didn't feel like going out to brunch, so I decided to recreate it with a twist. I made two different fillings - raspberry and brown sugar/pecan. You can try those or experiment to your liking!

Step 1: Gather your ingredients

Picture of Gather your ingredients
You will need all of the standard french toast ingredients, plus ingredients for stuffing. I am not listing exact amounts because it all depends on your taste and this is a recipe where exact measuring is not necessary.

Basics:
*Bread - I think that challah bread works the best, but you can also use french bread or even regular bread. If you are using regular pre-sliced bread you will need two peices per peice of french toast. If you are using french or challah bread you will need it sliced thick.
*eggs - one egg for every two peices of toast
*milk or cream - just a splash
*vanilla extract or almond extract - just a teaspoon for added flavor
*butter - to coat your cooking surface
*syrup - to serve it with

Raspberry stuffing:
*cream cheese
*seedless raspberry preserves or jam
*fresh raspberries (optional - it tastes better with fresh ones, but you can leave them out to save money or if they aren't in season)

Pecan stuffing:
*cream cheese
*brown sugar
*cinnamon
*pecans

Or the stuffing of your choice!

Step 2: Prepare your bread

If you have french bread of challah bread, you will want to use a thick slice. You need to use a bread knife to cut it down the middle but not to the edge (basically 'butterflying' it to make a pocket for stuffing).

If you are using regular bread, you need to spread a thin layer of cream cheese on each side. The cream cheese is part of the flavor of the stuffing, but it also helps to bind the two slices of bread together

You're welcome. I am glad she liked it =)
I make stuffed pancakes. Make the panckaes as usual, put stuffing on one of them then put it back on the grill and pour more batter on to it : ) .
