Stuffed French Toast is a decadent breakfast indulgence that transforms a classic into a culinary delight. Thick slices of soft bread are generously filled with a luscious mixture, often featuring cream cheese, berries, or sweetened mascarpone. The bread is then dipped into a velvety egg batter, absorbing its richness before griddling to golden perfection. The result is a symphony of textures and flavors—crispy on the outside, pillowy on the inside, and bursting with the sweet, creamy goodness of the filling. Served with a dusting of powdered sugar, a drizzle of maple syrup, or a scattering of fresh fruit, Stuffed French Toast is a breakfast treat that elevates the ordinary to the extraordinary, making mornings feel like a special occasion.
French toast is always a hit. This recipe makes it easy to make stuffed French toast at home… set it all up the night before and wake up to a delicious breakfast.
Stuffed French Toast
- 1 loaf of bread (unsliced)
- 2 cans fruit filling or fresh fruit in bite-sized pieces
- 12 oz ricotta cheese
- 8 eggs
- Splash of milk
- Pinch cinnamon or nutmeg or spices of your choice
- Maple syrup
- Start by slicing your bread pretty thinly and uniformly. Grease a 13×9 pan and line the bottom of the pan evenly with bread. This can lead to some creative cuts in your slicing.
- Spread about half of your ricotta cheese evenly over bread. We’re going to cover this up, so it doesn’t need to be perfect!
- Top your ricotta with fruit.
- Repeat with more bread, ricotta, and fruit. Top with a layer of bread.
- Mix your eggs with a splash of milk and your spices. Pour evenly over bread.
- Cover and pop this into the refrigerator overnight. This lets your eggs really soak into the bread. Remove from the fridge 30-45 minutes before you plan to bake this. When you’re ready, heat your oven to about 400 degrees and bake for a minimum of 45 minutes. You can cover with foil for the first half of your cooking time to keep the top from getting too brown.
- Slice and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup on top.
