Stuffed French Toast

What a decadent breakfast fit for a B&B. Homemade bread filled with sugar free homemade jam for an outstanding Stuffed French Toast breakfast. from #dietersdownfall.comStuffed French Toast – homemade bread filled with homemade mixed berry jam or nectarine jam and served with fresh berries.

This stuffed french toast is the perfect for a family breakfast and it will definitely impress your parents and in-laws. It’s not difficult or time-consuming and the result is a beautiful and flavorful morning meal that will satisfy almost everyone.

The first time I’d ever had a stuffed french toast was at a bed and breakfast place that my husband and I stayed at in Charlottesville, VA. We were taking two days to go to a bunch of wineries. This of course was B.C. – before child. It was January and chilly outside, but inside the B&B there was a fireplace and a hot breakfast that warmed us up before we headed out for our day.

Fresh Bread and homemade jam makes the best stuffed french toast. from #dietersdownfall.comI believe that they served us with a Marmalade stuffed french toast. It’s been so long since I’ve had my first (and only) stuffed french toast, so I decided I wanted to give it a try for myself.

I loved the sweet Nectarine Jam stuffed french toast the best. With just a hint of pure maple syrup it was by far one of the best meals I have ever had.

If you are a fan of Breakfast for Dinner, I’d suggest this along with some bacon or sausage.

Mixed Berry Jam in a stuffed french toast breakfast. from #dietersdownfall.comThe mixed berry jam was a bit more tart because I didn’t add any sugar when I made the jam. I liked the sweetness that the syrup provided. I also warmed up some jam and served it on top of the french toast.

I left my cream cheese and jam mixture on the lumpy side. The cream cheese was thick in spots, but when it’s warm and soft, it was very tasty. You can beat the cream cheese smooth before adding in the jam for a creamier consistency.

Homemade Bread stuffed with Stone fruit jam and cream cheese makes for a special Sunday morning brunch.
  • Homemade Jam
  • Homemade Bread cut into 6 1½ inch thick slices
  • Cream Cheese
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • Butter for griddle
  1. Preheat a griddle or a large skillet.
  2. Prepare your filling. For each slice of bread I mixed 1 tablespoon of jam to 1 tablespoon of cream cheese and stir until desired smoothness is reached. I left mine on the thicker side. This allows your guests to pick their flavor of filling. Slice the bread into 1½ inch thick slices, about two fingers thick. Slice a horizontal pocket into the bread being careful not to cut all the way through. Place the jam and cream cheese mixture into a piping bag and fill the pocket.
  3. Once all the bread is stuffed, prepare the egg mixture. Whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla if you like a sweeter batter in a large flat baking dish. Carefully dip the bread into the egg mixture and coat both sides.
  4. Melt a tablespoon of butter in the griddle and add the custard bread. Cook until golden brown and flip to cook. Should be about 4 minutes per side depending on the heat of the griddle.
  5. Serve with syrup, sprinkle with powdered sugar, or heat up some jam and serve over top.
  6. Adding fresh fruit and some bacon is always a delicious side to french toast.
Additional milk and eggs may have to be added if your bread soaks up a lot of the moisture.
