Stuffed French Toast

May 4, 2016

I rarely spend much time on breakfast.  I usually want to just get out of the door for my days activity.  Recently I tried my hand at making this stepped up French toast.  It was good, fairly easy, although next time I’d make cut my slices thinner so it is not as much to chew.

Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 5 mins each
Total Time: 10 mins
Yield: 8-10 with modified thinner slices
Taste: Good

INGREDIENTS: 

4 eggs (about 1 egg per every 2 slices)
3/4 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract, divided
1 loaf bread, roughly 1 lb (Challah is best otherwise, Italian, French or other) you want to be able to cut thicker slices
5 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 banana, thinly sliced

PROCEDURE:

  1. Whisk together eggs, milk and 1 tsp vanilla extract and set aside.
  2. Cutting halfway down the slice, cut a pocket into each slice of bread. Cutting a little deeper in the middle towards the bottom, but without cutting the edges down any further than halfway.
  3. In a small bowl mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla until smooth.
  4. Spread a thick layer of the sweetened cream cheese inside the pocket, then add a layer of bananas.
  5. Dip stuffed slices in the egg mixture and cook over medium heat on the stove until both sides are golden brown. Serve with butter and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

I would cut smaller pieces of bread next time.
