What is Stuffed French Toast?
Stuffed French Toast is actually a French toast sandwich. It’s made from French toast slices with a cream cheese and berry filling in the middle.
Famous breakfast-place Ihop used to carry this comfort food. Until they decide to add it to their menu again, you can make a copycat Stuffed French Toast in the comfort of your home! Plus you can easily customize it to fit your family’s taste buds. You will be so glad you finally took the time to jazz up regular French toast. It’s absolutely worth it!
What Type of Bread is Best for French Toast
You can make French Toasts with pretty much any bread on hand. This includes baguette, challah, brioche, even sourdough or gluten-free bread! Use bread that you have left over, or that you let dry on purpose overnight. This way the slices won’t absorb too much egg and get soggy, but instead will turn out perfectly. Some other ideas include — thick slices from our White Country Bread, Easter Bread, or for a healthier option, our Honey Wheat Bread.
