Every weekend, Hubby and I eat eggs for breakfast. Some days it’s on a sandwich with bacon, sometimes, just scrambled with toast, and other times, we just eat them over easy. It’s our standard breakfast Saturday and Sunday each weekend. We rarely go for sweets for breakfast even considering the amount of sweets that are always in the house.
I decided to mix things up with this Raspberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast. We were both very excited for the change of pace. This recipe raises french toast to a whole new level.
Every bite includes the delicious sweetness that french toast always provides. Then it throws in some delicious fruit and berry cream cheese. Literally nothing is better than a bite of this french toast topped with powdered sugar and maple syrup.

Yield: Serves 6
1-2 loaves French bread
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup berry cream cheese (or use another 3 Tbsp cream cheese and 2 Tbsp jam)
~1 cup raspberries
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter
Cut the bread into slices, approximately 2 inches thick. Make a long, deep cut into the middle of the bread slice, entering from the top.
Sprinkle the raspberries with sugar, and allow them to sit while you mix the filling. Spoon berry cream cheese and sweetened berries into the bread pocket. Try and seal the edges if possible.
Combine the eggs, cinnamon and milk.
Heat up your griddle or skillet. Once hot, add butter and let it melt.
Soak each side of the stuffed toast in the egg mixture, about 30 seconds on each side. Fry the french toast, about three minutes on each side (or until golden brown). You can try and give the edges a little heat as well, as the bread is very thick.
Cut the stuffed French toast in half, and garnish with powdered sugar and more raspberries, if desired.
