Raspberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast
Ingredients
  • French Toast:
  • 1 bread loaf sliced into 2" slices
  • 1 cup milk
  • (or ½ cup milk and ½ cup creamer)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 4 Tbsp butter, divided
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar for dusting
  • Optional: mint garnish
  • Raspberry Cream Cheese:
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 package of raspberries (set some whole aside as garnish)
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Start by prepping your cream cheese. Puree the raspberries in a blender or food processor, then place them in your mixer with the whisk attachment along with the cream cheese and vanilla and combine until fully incorporated.
  2. Next, prep your french toast. Start by slicing your loaf into 2" slices. Then cut a slice ¾ of the way through the tops of each of the 2" slices so it forms a pocket.
  3. Next, combine your milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and sugar in a bowl and whisk.
  4. Prep your skillet with 2 Tbsp of butter and start to heat over medium heat.
  5. Dunk two slices of toast into your egg mixture and when butter is melted, add your two slices to your skillet and grill each slice on each side until golden brown.
  6. Repeat with other slices.
  7. When finished, stuff the raspberry cream cheese into the pocket of each 2" french toast slice.
  8. Garnish with extra cream cheese, raspberries, mint, and powdered sugar.
  9. Serve with maple syrup.
  10. Enjoy!
