Stuffed French Toast

Ok, so I gotta say, I looove these so much!  I got this recipe from Good Things Utah, the guest for that day was Johnson Mills.  They shared one of their bed and breakfast recipes, Stuffed French Toast, and their amazing!  You have to try it out!  I have actually never made these for breakfast, I have made them a few times for Brinner though!  Left over batter keeps well to use again the next day!  Go ahead and prepare the bread with cream cheese (place back in plastic bag it came in) so the next day all you have to do is dip and fry and you're good to go for dinner again.  I rate these a 5!!

The thick batter.

Spread the cream cheese on one slice of bread, put together, then...

slice in half.

Dip in batter, make sure every inch is covered, then fry until each side has been browned. 

Ready for the yummy fruit topping...

Here it is!

All ready to eat, yum!  My favorite sides for this dish are cut up mixed fruit and sausage patties, yummy!!!

Johnson Mill's Stuffed French Toast
Griddle Temperature: 350 degrees

2 Eggs
1/2 Cube Melted Butter
1 1/2 c Milk
4 t. Vanilla
1/4 c Sugar
2/3 c Flour
1/2 t Salt

Loaf of Texas Toast (2 slices per person)
1 T Strawberry Cream Cheese per person

1/2 Bag of Frozen mixed berries
1 T Cornstarch
2 T Sugar Divided

1 1/2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream (If you want to make your own Whipped Cream)

Sliced Almonds (I didn't!)

1. Mix ingredients from eggs to salt in blender (I use my hand blender) to create your batter, then pour into mixing bowl.
2. Put frozen mixed berries in pot, add sugar and corn starch and place on med high heat.
3. In mixing bowl pour in heavy whipping cream, add sugar and mix with hand mixer on medium until peaks form.  Add more sugar if needed.  (I just buy the spray out whipped cream)
4. Spread strawberry cream cheese between 2 pieces of bread.  Cut diagonally.  Dip each piece in the batter and fry on griddle that has been greased w/ melted butter.  Fry until each side is browned.
5. Plate French Toast and top with warmed mixed berries, fresh whipped cream and slivered almonds.  YUMMY!!!

Use only Texas Style bread because it's thick enough to soak up all the batter and won't get gooey.  Plus, it's just so good!  Enjoy!
