Stuffed French Toast

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!)
2 eggs
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.  


  1. Found you through Cast Party Wednesdays. It has *never* occured to me to use coconut oil for frying french toast. That sounds heavenly! We do strawberry/cream cheese stuffed french toast a lot; it's like dessert for dinner! Thanks for the great idea!

  2. That looks fantastic. I love "brinner" too. Could do that every night! Come over and visit us. We have a great grilled squash recipe and tomorrow a really easy sorbet.
