stuffed french toast

We love this recipe! I just threw a few things together one day and it has turned out to be one of our favorites.


Stuffed French Toast (makes 8 )

3 eggs

1 1/2 c. milk

1/4 t. nutmeg

1/2 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. vanilla

16 slices whole wheat bread

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

naturally sweetened jam or jelly

oil or butter

Directions:

Beat eggs. Add milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Whisk until combined.

Make 8  jam & cream cheese sandwiches – jam on one slice, cream cheese on another, stick the two slices together.

Heat  1-2 T. of oil or butter over medium-high heat in a skillet or griddle. Quickly dip your sandwiches into your egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides. (Do not dip until you are ready to cook because the bread will get too soggy.) Cook approx. 3-4 min on each side, or until golden brown.

Top with syrup or powdered sugar.

Note: This is also delicious with cinnamon & sugar inside instead of jam.

    The filling sounds good! For those of us who don’t like the “eggy” taste of French Toast, maybe we could just butter the bread and cook as usual.
    Mmmmm, that makes me hungry!

      If you don’t like the “eggy” flavor or texture normal to french toast you can use a really thin pancake batter instead to dip it in.
