I love breakfast foods and could eat them for any meal of the day. We eat "Brinner", as the hubs calls it, at least twice a month for dinner, sometimes more. I love it for so many reasons. It's cheap, it's fast, it's easy, and I usually have all the ingredients on hand. I'm not sure I could pick just one favorite breakfast food, but if I had to, this would definitely be in the running. It is so versatile and easy to fit to your tastes. You don't have to make a separate meal for picky eaters, just stuff it with what they like. I'm not really sure this is a recipe, but we love it so much I wanted to share it.
Stuffed French Toast
1 loaf of french bread (Doesn't have to be fresh--day or two old is great too!)
1/2 cup milk
Butter (or coconut oil) for the pan
Your favorite toppings/stuffings (Some ideas include berries and cream cheese, peanut butter, nutella, nutella mixed with cream cheese, flavored cream cheese, leftover frosting...anything you can dream up. As a side note, bananas don't work very well because they get mushy when hot.)
In half-inch increments, slice french bread making every other cut go all the way through. This will leave you with 1-inch thick slices that have a nice pocket for stuffing. Stuff each piece with, well, stuff.
Preheat electric skillet to 325 or stove top griddle to medium-low heat. In shallow dish, beat eggs with a fork. Add milk and beat until combined. (Some people like to add vanilla or salt and pepper or cinnamon to their milk and eggs. I like mine unadulterated.)
Butter the hot skillet. Dip each piece of stuffed french bread in the egg and milk mixture on each side. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and to your desired crispiness. Serve immediately.
