Stuffed French Toast Recipe

Today I am sharing my Stuffed French Toast recipe. Can you say delicious?!

Every Christmas my family and I have Christmas brunch instead of the typical Christmas dinner. This is a tradition I started because Thanksgiving and Christmas are so close together. I was not interested in serving or eating the same foods I had just made for Thanksgiving. So this is how Christmas brunch began at our house.

French Toast stuffed with sweet cream cheese and sliced in half.

Our main dish is this Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast. It is seriously to die for! My whole family loves it! Cover it with fresh or frozen strawberries. Use the juice from the frozen strawberries in place of syrup. If you prefer fresh strawberries, you can use strawberry syrup. Top with whipped cream and you are set. Enjoy!!

How to Make Stuffed French Toast

  1. Start by making the cream cheese filling. Beat together softened (room temperature) cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until it’s a spreadable consistency. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer will help get the mixture nice and smooth, but you could also just mix with a big spoon. To make sure that the cream cheese is at room temperature, let it sit in the bowl unwrapped for 30 minutes before mixing.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together egg, milk, sugar, and cinnamon until it’s well combined.
  3. Spread a thick layer of the sweetened cream cheese on one side of a slice of Texas Toast. Top with another slice of toast to form a sandwich.
  4. Dip both sides of the sandwich in the egg mixture until it begins to soak into the bread and coat it completely. Place the sandwich on a buttered grilled or skillet and grill until golden brown, flipping to cook evenly.

  1. I loved this recipe, the filling turned out great and having leftover filling was perfect since this will be a new go to breakfast. I did want to add for the French toast dip, I highly recommend adding in 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon of clove, and a little salt then mixing all your spices separate and adding into the egg mixture to mix. This has been a game changer in making French toast have a pop of flavor!

  2. Making this camping this weekend. Couldn’t I use strawberry cream cheese for the middle? Or would I definitely need to mix with powdered sugar?

    1. Hi Lindsay, That could be tricky. Flavored cream cheese is more of a spread and therefore not as thick. The powdered sugar thickens regular cream cheese a little. As it cooks, it melts a bit and I’d worry that the flavored cream cheese would become too thin. I would give it a try at home first, to make sure it would work.

  3. This is just What I was looking for.. absolutely excellent!! my husband and I both just loved it! will be making again soon
    thank you so much!

  4. This is a delicious recipe. I was wondering – can you substitute the vanilla for a different flavored extract? Maybe strawberry? Would it ruin the recipe?

    1. Hmm, good question! I’ve never used strawberry extract but I don’t think it would alter the flavor that much.

  5. This is my second weekend making these and will forever be our Sunday breakfast. They are amazing and don’t last long. I double the recipe and we grab them weekday mornings from the fridge for a quick breakfast. We don’t use syrup or anything either. There good just the way they are.

  6. I was scared to try this at first, but this recipe is amazing!!! My husband, me and the kids loved them!! Perfect taste and fruit compliments it, along with extra powdered sugar sprinkled on the outside!! Will make again!!

  7. I never review recipes but this was amazing!
    I added about 1tbs of orange zest to the filling and it was delightful!

  8. I have made this multiple times in the past. Gotta admit “Stuffed French Toast” sound intimidating but the recipie has shown me how simple and easy it truly is. Now my wife wants stuffed French toast for her bday breakfast. Luckily I saves this to my home screen. Thanks.

  9. I think I put too much cream cheese in the middle because when I went to cut my cooked toast it was definitely fighting to separate but aside from that it was solid

  10. 1st shot at stuffed french toast. I made his exactly by the recipe. Everybody loved it! Including the wife, who is a bit picky when it comes to dishes like this!
    My initial concern was the amount of vanilla, but having never made a filing like this, I stuck to the recipe to have a base line.
    I’m about to make it the second time and I’m not changing a thing.
    Thanks for taking the time to share this recipe with us!

  11. Once these are made, is it possible to freeze the extras and reheat in the oven when you are ready for a delicious breakfast again? If so, how long will they last in the freezer and how long should they be cooked in the oven at what temp?

    1. Freezing cooked stuffed french toast is tricky and won’t likely work. However, you can freeze the sandwiches before dipping and frying.
      When ready to serve, pull the sandwiches out of the freezer to thaw at room temp for at least 30 minutes. Then, make as directed, dipping in fresh egg mixture and frying in a skillet.

      1. I have made these when I was a line cook and for the life of me I could not remember what all went kn wirh the cream cheese. I did slightly change my recipe. I added a dash of allspice and vanilla to my egg batter, I added slightly less vanilla to my spread and added cinnamon and sugar to the spread and to the egg batter. Instead of dipping the entire sandwich into the batter I made the French toast as usual and put the spread in between the 2 cooked French toast pieces. I find it easier that way a d I know that the batter is completely cooked through. I have e had some where there was raw egg still inside from dipping it. I added whip cream and powder sugar on top. On the side I had a small dish of syrup to dip it into. I went with s cinnamon type cream cheese filling.

  12. So loved this recipe. I have a lot of cream cheese filling left over. What else could I do with it? Thank you for the wonderful breakfast this morning!!

  13. I made this recipe for my daughters birthday and she loved it! Such a great recipe. I made homemade whipped cream for the top and covered with strawberries. Will be making again!

  14. I made it – but modified it a little. 1 TBSP of vanilla seemed like a lot, so I did 1 tsp. Also, two eggs?? I made it 7.

  15. This french toast is OUTSTANDING. I made it just for a Saturday morning breakfast and it was so quick and easy. My boyfriend woke up and asked if I was cooking for 2 hours. Topped it with powered sugar, fresh strawberries and Vermont bourbon maple syrup. I will 100% be making this again!

  16. I made the stuffed French toast on Easter and there was not one piece left by the time we were done breakfast. This is so delicious and easy to make. I served it with sliced strawberries, powdered sugar, real maple syrup and whipped cream. My family loved it. Will definitely be making this again and not waiting for a holiday!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
