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.

  3. Tracie says:

    Can you make ahead and freeze for future use

    1. Kristin Maxwell says:

      You can freeze french toast by itself, but the texture of the cream cheese filling would be comprised so no, I wouldn’t recommend freezing.
