Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of ingredients
This recipe is slightly different than my previous french toast recipe. The main difference is the inclusion of evaporated milk. Depending on your preference you can edit this recipe for a soggier or eggy mixture. As with much of cooking, personal flair is just as important as exact measurements.

This recipe makes about 6 slices of stuffed french toast, enough to feed two:
  • bread:
    • 6x thick-slice bread (aka Texas Toast)
  • batter:
    • 100ml (1/2 cup) evaporated milk
    • 100ml (1/2 cup) milk
    • 2x eggs
    • spices (nutmeg, cinnamon)
  • crust:
    • 1 cup grainy-flake type cereal  (frosted/corn flakes, etc) 
    • nuts (optional)
  • filling:
    • 2 1/2 cups fruit of your choice
    • 4 tablespoons cream cheese
utensils + implements:
  • stove
  • disposable plastic bag(pastry piping bag)
  • 2 plates
  • large mixing bowl
  • whisk
  • spatula
  • measuring cup
  • spoon
  • cutting boards
  • rolling pin
  • sharp knife
  • frying pan
  • butter

Frozen fruit can be substituted for fresh provided it's thawed prior to filling.
I chose this berry selection because they get nice and juicy when mushed.
Fruit should be reduced to juicy pulp, either by potato masher or stove-top cooking.

You could easily modify this recipe for a savory twist, like Montreal streak spice crusted toast stuffed brie and black forest ham. Vary this recipe to suit your preferance. Experiment with different types of bread, soaking times and fillings.

Might have to wipe my keyboard since I'm drooling all over it. I actually like the way strawberry coulis topping goes with the stuffed toast.

Looks wonderful!! :D

Some people also use custards as fillings and then deep fry it.

Normally my mom and I just get 2 pieces of regular toast and put spreads in between (peanut butter and jelly, jelly and cream cheese, frozen fruits+something else, maybe some nutella+fruit).
This would be a "surprise!" way to make stuffed french toast.
Ugh gross! It looks like it's bleeding all over the plate. Disgusting!
Hey, looks fantastic! Must try!
mmmm this looks awesome. If you got creative you could turn this into a pretty good dinner.
