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 )
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
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.
