Equipment

  • nonstick skillet
  • spatula
  • serrated knife
  • bowls
  • Cutting Board

Ingredients

  • 4-6 challah bread slices cut into 1 1/4 inches
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup raspberries optional
  • 1/4 cup blueberries optional
  • butter, for frying

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the softened cream cheese and sugar. Mix well and then fold in the blueberries and raspberries. 
  • In a separate bowl, combine the milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Mix until well combined. 
  • Using a serrated knife, cut a horizontal slit on the crust of each slice of bread stopping just before you reach the opposite crust. This will create a pocket for the filling. 
  • Spoon about 2 tbsp of the cream cheese mixture into each slice of bread. 
  • Add some butter to a skillet and once it melts, dip the bread in the egg mixture on both sides and then place the bread in the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Serve immediately with butter and syrup.

Notes

  • For best results use fresh ingredients except for the bread, the bread should be slightly stale.
  • Make sure the cream cheese is softened at room temperature.
  • If you're serving these stuffed french toast with syrup, I recommend using a small amount of cream cheese for each slice of bread otherwise it will be too sweet. A little bit goes a long way!
  • Use a nonstick skillet.
  • Don't leave the bread in the custard for too long, 3-4 seconds per side is plenty.
  • If using sandwich bread, use two slices of bread and prepare it like a sandwich. Spread a layer of cream cheese filling on one side of the bread and top with the second slice of bread.
