How To Make Stuffed French Toast
Stuffed french toast is usually made, first, by cutting a thick slice of bread. It doesn't work well with pre-sliced bread such as the Wonder Bread; the slices are too thin and we don't want to have two separate slices, just one big slice.
Unlike regular french toast we want to use one thick slice of bread with a pocket opening in it for the stuffing. You will need to start with a full loaf of non-sliced bread.
First, cut off a slice of bread, about 1 and a half inch in thickness.
The thickness of your slice should be the same as the thinkness of two "wonder bread" slices put together.
Cut this thick slice of bread with the knife to half of its length directly across the center line of its side. This will create a "pocket" into which you will put your stuffing. Don't cut it all the way into two slices! We need it in one piece.
Now that you have cut an opening in the bread (but not all the way) it is ready to be stuffed with a stuffing of your choice. You want to put stuffing into the opening you just made before cooking it on the pan.
- 3 large eggs.
- 3/4 cup of milk (or 180 ml)
- 1 teaspoon of sugar (you can use brown sugar)
- 2 tablespoons of half-and-half cream
- 1/4 (dash) of cinnamon powder
- 1/4 (dash) of nutmeg powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands® pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup ricotta cheese.
- Confectioners' sugar
- Maple syrup, optional
Directions / Makes One Stuffed French Toast
- Cut bread into 1 thick slice (the thickness of two wonder-bread slices). Cut a pocket opening across the center of the side (about 1/2 or 3/4, but not all the way) and stuff with ricotta cheese;
- Mix up eggs, cream, vanilla extract and cinnamon together in a bowl.
- Dip the sandwich into the egg mixture. In a skillet or on a frying pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Grill sandwiches slowly until golden brown; every 3 minutes turn and grill other side until the desired level of crispinness is achieved.
- Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar or cinnamon. Top with maple syrup.
How to Make French Toast Stuffing
Well, this really depends on your taste. As an example, I am going to suggest Ricotta cheese as one possible stuffing idea for your toast:
You can add some fruit into the mix. Mix your Ricotta cheese with cubes or slices of pear, strawberries, bananas or blueberry.
Remember, that you want to stuff your french toast before dipping it into the egg and milk mixture.
Try experimenting by adding just a dash of cinnamon powder to the mix.
Always preheat your pan before putting the stuffed toast on it. And always melt butter on the pan before placing your toast on the surface, to make sure that it doesn’t burn or stick. Cook each site of your toast for 3 minutes, or until the desired level of crispiness (golden brown) is reached.
Note, stuffing french toast will add calories to it in addition to the calories from eggs.
Optionally, put syrup or sprinkle sugar powder on top of your completed french toast.
So what kind of things you can stuff your french toast with?
Ricotta or Cream cheese.
Any type of thick fruit jam: strawberry, orange, apricot, pear, blueberry…etc.
Sweet potatoes are a great idea for non-sweet stuffing.
Vermont Richotta cheese
Top with maple syrup and dust with sugar powder!
