Ingredients

Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

French Toast

  • 12 slices of Texas Toast or thick cut sturdy bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c. whole milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • Toppings: maple syrup, fresh berries, powdered sugar, whipped cream

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl beat together the filling ingredients until smooth.
  • Spread a thick layer of the cream cheese filling on one side of half of the slices of Texas Toast. Top with the remaining bread slices to form a sandwich. We recommend leaving roughly a ½’’ board around the edges.
  • In a large bowl whisk together eggs, whole milk, cinnamon and vanilla; set aside.
  • In a large skillet or griddle over medium-low heat melt butter. Dip sandwiches in egg mixture, turning a few times to thoroughly coat. Let excess egg mixture drip off “sandwiches”. Place on griddle and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip over and cook an additional 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy on each side. Keep heat low to avoid burning.
  • Remove from pan and slice in half on the diagonal; place on platter, top with desired toppings and serve.

Notes

  • Keep warm on a baking sheet in the oven until ready to serve.
  • Cooked french toast can be held in a 250 degree oven for up to 1 hour before serving.
