Easy Stuffed French Toast


Please excuse my wonderful (note the sarcasm) picture taking skills here. I had a goal of feeding the three of us before we went on a 2 hour car ride to visit family and I was DETERMINED to not stop in a drive thru. I can happily say, we did it! Paul commented also when we were heading up to bed after the long day, that the only money we spent besides gas a tolls was a quick stop to get sodas for the ride home (no one had diet soda at their house lol).


You could certainly make this french toast recipe using some fancy gourmet french bread, but I needed to use up the rest of the wheat bread in the fridge. Very simple and very yummy, my kind of breakfast!




Easy Stuffed French Toast


2-4 Slices of bread per person
spreadable cream cheese (or brick cream cheese left out to soften a bit)
jelly (I used Smucker's Blackberry Jam)
3 eggs
1/4-1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
dash cinnamon




In a shallow bowl, mix eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.


On half of the bread slices, spread a generous amount of cream cheese. On the other half of the bread  slices spread jelly. Place slices together "sandwich style."


Coat skillet with non stick cooking spray. Dip stuffed french toast in egg mixture, thoroughly coating both sides and letting excess drip off. Place in skillet and cook each side about 2 minutes on medium heat.



Serve immediately.

  3. That stuffed french toast sounds just wonderful! We live a few hours from family also so I totally understand how it can be so hectic trying to get out the door to visit! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
