Stuffed French Toast

My in-laws live on the East Coast of Florida, so we almost always spend the night whenever we go over to visit.  They are big brunch people, which I absolutely love, because honestly, who doesn’t love brunch?!?  The first time I spent the weekend there (while the Hubby and I were still dating), my mother-in-law made this absolutely decadent Stuffed French Toast.

Hubby and I were still in the early stages of dating at time time, so this was the first time I was really spending time with his family and we were all just getting to know each other.  I was still in the guest phase in their home, so no matter how much I offered help, I was encouraged to relax and enjoy my morning while my in-laws prepared breakfast.

After 4 years together, I am finally allowed to help in the kitchen when we visit!  Naturally, on our most recent visit when I was asked what I wanted for breakfast my first response was stuffed french toast!  I was bound and determined to finally learn this family recipe  😎

Stuffed French Toast

French Toast
 1 loaf French Bread, sliced into 2in slices
 7 eggs, beaten
 1 tbsp cinnamon
 ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
 ¼ tsp fresh nutmeg, grated
Filling
 8 oz cream cheese, softened and cubed
 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream (or half and half)
 1 tsp vanilla, to taste
 ½ cup chopped pecans (optional)

1

Cut pocket in each slice of French Toast. Your pocket should be no more than 2/3 deep.

2

In medium bowl, combine cream cheese, 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream and vanilla. Add additional whipping cream as needed to achieve desired consistency (similar to a whipped cream cheese).

3

Fold in pecans, if desired.

4

Spoon filling into pockets of french toast. You want the pockets to be full without overflowing. Set aside.

5

Beat together eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream in shallow baking dish.

6

Soak stuffed french bread in mixture. 2-3 minutes per side should be sufficient. You want to ensure each side is well coated without getting soggy.

7

Cook slices on lightly greased nonstick griddle or skillet on medium heat until browned on both sides.

8

Serve with fresh fruit and warm maple syrup.

My first attempt at this family favorite was a smashing success!  This decadent stuffed french toast recipe has been added to my list of go-tos, and I can’t wait to whip up a batch for our next house guests  😀

Stuffed french toast pairs perfectly with some fresh squeezed orange juice.  If you really want to up your brunch game, mix up a batch of my mom’s famous Bellinis or some Champagne Lemonade.

  1. This looks amazing! I am planning on trying it at Christmas when the whole family comes home. Thanks for the ideal!

  2. This just sounds incredible. Breakfasts around here are usually just fruit, cereal, or something else that is quick. Next weekend, I will have to surprise my husband with this!
