Stuffed French Toast

Serves 2

Ingredients:

For the French Toast –

4 slices white sandwich bread (any bread will do, stale bread is great – wheat bread, challah)

2 large eggs

1/3 cup half and half

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Nutella/Banana filling – (each filling will make 2 French Toast “sandwiches”)

1/4 cup Nutella

1/2 banana, thinly sliced

For the Strawberry Cheesecake filling –

2 ounces cream cheese, softened

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1/4 cup chopped strawberries

To finish –

1 tablespoon butter, for skillet

Warm maple syrup, for serving

Directions:

  1. To make the custard for the French toast – whisk together the eggs, half and half, sugar, and vanilla extract. Set aside until ready to use.
  2. To build the Nutella/Banana French Toast – for each sandwich, spread 1 tablespoon of Nutella on each slice of sandwich bread. Top one slice with banana slices. Place the other piece of sandwich bread on top to complete the sandwich.
  3. To build the Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast – mix together the softened cream cheese and the powdered sugar. For each sandwich, top one slice of sandwich bread with half of the cheesecake mixture, and then top with 2 tablespoons of the chopped strawberries. Top with another slice of sandwich bread.
  4. To cook the French Toast – place the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip both sides of the French Toast “sandwich” in the custard, and then immediately place into the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, on until golden brown all over.
  5. Cut the sandwiches in half, top with warm maple syrup, and enjoy.

Enjoy!
