Raspberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

A decadent breakfast treat that is perfect for lazy weekend brunches.

Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 6 tbsp spreadable cream cheese
  • 6 tbsp raspberry jam
  • 1 loaf brioche bread
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 2-3 tbsp salted butter

Instructions

  1. In a shallow pan or pie plate, whisk milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt together until well mixed.   Spread almonds on a plate and set up an assembly line for dipping your bread with the egg mixture, followed by the almonds.

  2. Preheat a large cast-iron skillet over low-medium heat and add 1-2 tbsp of butter.  Spread 1 pieces of brioche with 1 tbsp of raspberry jam and another slice with 1 tbsp cream cheese, then put together like a sandwich.  Dip each side in the egg mixture for several seconds, letting any excess drip off into the pan.  Press each side into the almonds and transfer to the frying pan.

  3. Fry each side for about 4-5 minutes or until egg is cooked and almonds are browned.   Continue assembling sandwiches and frying, adding more butter to the pan as needed.   Serve warm.
