I love breakfast foods especially indulgent ones. Similar to my Vegan Banana pancakes with maple pecan whiskey sauce, I love inventing ways to use up ingredients around the house.

When there is day old bread or fruits sitting in the kitchen, DON’T THROW THEM AWAY. Create magic!

Making Stuffed French Toast

This stuffed french toast uses 2 day old French Baguettes dipped into a creamy spiced egg bath then stuffed with whipped sweetened cream cheese.

The Apple compote uses 3 apples, cinnamon, mixed spice and brown sugar all cooked slowly on the stove until a soft apples and thickened sweet sauce appears.

What Bread is Best for Stuffed French Toast

Basically any crusty thick bread such as a Baguette, French baguette or Sourdough for example. Brioche bread and other eggy breads are also top tier French toast options because they soak up the egg mixture well.

Tips on Making Stuffed French Toast

  • Cut your bread at least 1 inch thick. If the bread is too thin it will be soggy and will not hold shape or be able to stuff anything.
  • Allow the bread to soak up the egg mixture for at least 5 minutes or more. Dry centers are not cool.

A Healthy Alternative

If you don’t want to fry the French toast, Baking is another option that works.

Place the rounds in a baking dish and bake at 350F/150C for 20-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

A Vegan option is also in the works so stay tuned!
