Stuffed French Toast with Raspberry Sauce

Around our house, breakfast is the favorite meal of the day.  Which is honestly a little weird because I've never really like breakfast.  In fact, I skipped it for most of my high school years.  Even now I don't love a huge breakfast unless it is late in the morning.  But I am outnumbered in my house.  

Make your own delicious Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast with Raspberry Sauce with just a few ingredients and fresh produce from the market.

That means, I get to learn to make fun, nutritious and yummy breakfasts for my family.  Often that means eggs and bacon (my husband's favorite).  But if I'm going to eat breakfast, I like something sweet.  Which is how I came up with this yummy cream cheese stuffed french toast.  

Stuffed French Toast with Raspberry Sauce



I became familiar with cream cheese stuffed french toast when my husband and I were first married (over 10 years ago).  We went to lunch a little diner that had a great breakfast menu.  One the menu was a stuffed french toast.  It was delicious!!  It had a nice thick bread, crisp outside and gooey inside.  I just knew I had to make the recipe myself.  So I did.

It took me a couple years and lots of experiments before I found the perfect cream cheese stuffed french toast combination.  It might sound silly, but to really make this recipe yummy, you'll want to use a quality cream cheese (I used Philadelphia cream cheese.)  You'll also want to pick a bread that has a little bit of form already and isn't to floppy.  (It's still good with floppy bread, but a good Texas type bread is a better choice.)

Combine the cream cheese, cream and cinnamon in a bowl and mix until it is really smooth.  The smoother the better.  You'll spread this right onto the bread and make it a sandwich.

Next, I'd make the raspberry sauce.  That way it has a chance to really become juicy with the sugar.  You could almost eat this all by itself.

One final tip, cook your cream cheese stuffed french toast on a medium to low heat.  Low and slow is better for the crispness of the toast and to help melt that gooey inside.
