How to Make Stuffed French Toast
- Beat the filling ingredient until smooth in a mixing bowl.
- Spread a thick layer of filling on one side of half of the slices of bread. Top with remaining bread slices to form sandwich.
- Whisk the eggs, whole milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a large mixing bowl; set aside.
- Melt butter in large skillet over medium low heat. Dip sandwiches in egg mixture, turning a few times to coat. Let the excess egg mixture drip off. Place in skillet and cook 4-5 minutes, flip and cook an additional 4-5 minute or until golden brown and crispy on each side.
- Remove from pan and slice in half on the diagonal; place on platter and top with desired toppings.
How to keep Stuffed French Toast warm
It’s so easy to make a big batch of this Stuffed French Toast and serve to guests!
Simply place the french toast on a baking sheet then place it in a oven at 250 degrees F for up to a hour before serving.
Can you freeze Stuffed French Toast?
Yes you can freeze them!
I would recommend assembling the sandwiches then freezing them before dipping them in the egg mixture.
When you are ready to serve them, remove the sandwiches from the freezer, bring them to room temperature and prepare according to directions.
How to reheat Stuffed French Toast
I prefer to place the leftovers on a baking sheet and put it in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes or until heated through. I recommend flipping them half way through cooking. This helps keep it crispy on the outside.
You can also place them in a skillet on your stove top. Spray skillet with non-stick spray, place french toast in skillet and toast them for a few minutes on each side.
You can also microwave it to warm it up but it will not be crispy.
