Back to French Toast

We used to love going on kids dates with Even Stevens and we fell in love with their stuffed French toast. Two perfectly golden pieces of French toast stuffed with sweet cream cheese. It’s the perfect thing brunch or holiday breakfast!

It all starts with our best recipe for French toast, and then you make a simple sweet cream cheese filling and basically make sandwiches. It’s so easy, but it tastes gourmet!

Here is a quick list of the ingredients you will need to make this recipe. The dimensions of each ingredient are indicated in the recipe card at the end of this post.

  • French toast: brioche, eggs, butter, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, flour, salt
  • Cream cheese: make sure it is room temperature so that it does not become lumpy
  • Powdered sugar: used to sweeten the cream cheese without adding any graininess
  • Vanilla: taste
  • Banana: neat and ripe to maximize sweetness
  • Berry sauce: you can use all the berries you want
  • Buttermilk syrup: pretty much liquid gold, the syrup of the gods, the nectar of heaven … you get the point!

We love topping this dish with some stabilized whipped cream and icing sugar! You can also top it with some chopped pecans or walnuts.

Because this dish is so sweet, I like to pair it with something spicy like bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs or hash browns.

Although we love this French toast topped with our triple berry sauce, the possibilities are endless and can be customized entirely to your preferences. Here are a few ideas:

  • Fruit: Use other fruits to make a sauce or syrup like peaches, cherries, plums or apples. You can also add fruit to the cream cheese filling
  • Nuts: Top with almonds, walnuts, pecans, etc., or you can even mix them into the filling
  • Fill: Fill Nutella, peanut butter or another nut butter into the middle, you can also try a cream cheese with flavor to the filling
  • Toppings: top with chocolate chips, toffee pieces

Which bread is best for French toast?

You want a good solid bread that will soak up the egg mixture, but which also holds and goes completely into solution. Our favorite bread for French toast is brioche or challah. If you can not find any of them, French bread or Texas toast will also work fine.

How to reheat French toast:

  • Toaster: pop them in a toaster like a piece of toast, the outside will be nice and toasted again.
  • Oven: put French toast in a single layer on a baking sheet and heat them in the oven at 300 degrees for 5-7 minutes.
  • Microwave: zap them in the microwave for about a minute, the outside will not become crispy.
