There are certain foods in my mind that do NOT need to be elevated. They are sacred. They are perfect in their old fashioned ways, and I love them the way they are. French toast is my dad's specialty (aka it's the only food he really makes well) and one of my favorite breakfast foods, so when the idea of stuffed french toast came around I was not into it. I'm here today to tell you I took one bite as a test, sure that I would stay firm in my ways.... but I caved. I'm now a believer. You don't have to be, but I think one look at this video and you'll find yourself drooling and checking the fridge for cream cheese.
Denny's Stuffed French Toast
Serves 4 people
8 pieces of Texas Toast bread
1 cup of milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 oz cream cheese
Syrup and powdered sugar for garnish (if desired)
Butter for griddle or pan
Your choice of fruit (if berries, they need to be reduced on stovetop)
Mix together the eggs, milk, and vanilla in a shallow container. Dip bread in mixture and lay on buttered griddle or pan - it should be hot. Cook till golden brown and flip. Apply a layer of cream cheese to your french toast, then a layer of fruit. Top with another piece of toast, and garnish with syrup and/or powdered sugar. Enjoy!
