Stuffed French Toast
This Recipe for Stuffed French Toast comes from Joyce and Frank Stewart, Innkeepers at Vermont's Richmond Victorian Inn.
Stuffed French Toast
- 8 slices white (or wheat, or your favorite) sandwich bread
- 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 c. Vermont maple syrup
- 1/4 c. ground pecans
- 1/2 - 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground cloves (optional)
For the dipping custard:
- 3 eggs
- 1 c. milk or heavy cream
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- dash of cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- butter for frying
- Maple syrup (or honey) for serving
- powdered sugar (optional)
- fresh sliced fruits (optional)
- Combine filling ingredients in a small mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly with a fork or a hand mixer.
- Spread 4 slices of bread liberally with the filling mixture, then top mixture with remaining 4 slices, creating 4 sandwiches. Set sandwiches aside.
- Combine dipping custard ingredients in a shallow dish, and beat thoroughly with a fork or a whisk.
- Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a skillet over a medium high heat.
- Coat both sides of each sandwich by dipping into the custard mixture.
- Let the excess drip away, then place each sandwich into the hot buttered skillet.
- Fry sandwiches until golden brown on both sides, adding more butter as needed.
- Remove sandwiches from skillet and place them on warmed plates.
- Cut each sandwich in half diagonally, and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
- Garnish with fresh sliced fruits and/or whipped cream if desired. Serve with maple syrup.
Serving Tips and Suggestions:
- French toast is excellent served with bacon or sausage.
- Try different flavored syrups if desired.
- Do NOT discard any leftover filling. It keeps well in the fridge.
- Use bread that's a couple days old, as softer bread might fall apart when soaked.
