- Whisk the eggs, whole milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a large mixing bowl; set aside.

- Remove from pan and slice in half on the diagonal; place on platter and top with desired toppings.
Recipe Tips and Notes:
- Keeping stuffed french toast warm is so easy, and you can make a huge batch! Simply put the french toast on a large baking sheet. Then, place i nthe oven at 250 degrees for up to 20 minutes before serving.
- You can freeze this french toast! Make them into sandwiches first. The, freeze before dipping in the egg mixture. When ready to serve, pull the sandwiches out of the freezer to thaw at room temp for at least 30 minutes. Then, make as directed.
- Reheating stuffed french toast is easy, and you'll want to do it in the oven. Bake on a greased baking sheet at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes until heated through. Keep an eye on your french toast, and make sure to flip halfway through. You can also place them in a buttered skillet over medium heat and cook until golden!
