Stuffed French Toast...oui!

Last night we had my sister & her friend stay with us...so I wanted to be sure to have an extra scrumdidiliumptious (yes, I did just write that) breakfast this morning. Stuffed French Toast popped into my head...I've never made any, but I thought I'd go ahead and try it! I didn't even use a recipe and they turned out fabulous. Yeessssss!...that does not happen very often folks.

Here's what I used to make 4 servings of DELICIOUS stuffed french toast:
- 8 bread slices -
- 8 oz. softened cream cheese -
- 1/3 to 1/2 C. powdered sugar -
- sliced strawberries (or bananas, blueberries, etc.) -
- jam (we used apricot) -
- 5 eggs -
- 3 T. cinnamon sugar -
- 2 t. vanilla -

Here's how I made them:

1 - Mix softened cream cheese with powdered sugar
2 - Slice strawberries...toss with a bit of sugar :)

3 - Beat eggs with cinnamon sugar and vanilla in a big bowl/container (so the mixture is shallow)
4 - Spread cream cheese mixture over all 8 pieces of bread (Dave's Killer Bread is nutty, and hearty, and delicious...I get mine at Costco)
5 - Put sliced fruit and/or jam on 4 of the pieces of bread
6 - Using a spatula (with holes/slits) set a piece of bread in the egg mixture and let the one side soak for 5-10 seconds (longer the more dense your bread is).
7 - Place on warm griddle, and quickly soak another piece (for the other side) in egg mixture then place on top.
8 - Let cook until light golden brown on each side (being careful when flipping)
Bon appetite!
I loved mine just off the griddle, and Corrie & Nate enjoyed theirs with a little maple syrup.

Nate said, "This reminds me of the french toast over at Rays."
"Is that a restaurant??" I asked.
"Yep."

How cool is that!? Something I whipped up tastes like something others would pay for!
Big compliment in my book :)
