Our kids love this stuff french toast recipe now and then for a special breakfast. It's delicious, it feels a little fancy, and it's pretty simple to make. And as with all real food recipes, it only takes a few nourishing ingredients (to replace the rotten ingredients you used in the past, if you're anything like I was) and you've got a meal loaded with nutrients, too!
Stuffed French Toast Recipe
Eat as a dessert or as a breakfast meal with a savory side of pasture-raised bacon or sausage.
- Amounts are very flexible I'll include the amounts here for one serving and you can multiply it from there. If you're making a lot, you won't need to multiply the eggs and cream as much as the other stuff, just eyeball it. If you end up with extra filling, just use it as a yummy fruit dip.
- 2 pieces of your favorite bread — I used bread from a local baker who makes a soft organic fermented multi-grain loaf.
- 1 egg — pastured eggs are best
- 1/2 cup cream — you can use milk but cream is better! Read about healthy milk options here.
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Dash of sea salt
- Butter for frying pastured butter is best
- Fresh or frozen organic berries if you're using frozen, be sure to thaw and drain well
- A little real maple syrup for the top
- 4 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1/4 cup of your favorite no-GMO natural sugar
- 1/8 cup cream or milk
- Next mix up your cream cheese filling, then get your berries around. For fresh, give them a rinse; for frozen, thaw and drain.
- Now you're ready to put it all together.
- Heat up your pan — I use my FAVORITE pan, which I use almost daily around here lately, along with my new pressure cooker!
- Melt a tablespoon of butter in the pan, dip one piece of bread at a time into the egg mixture, and fry on one side 'til golden on low-medium heat.
- Flip one side over, use a spoon to spread some filling over the top. Place your berries on top of the filling.
- Then put the already cooked side of the other piece of bread face-down on the berries. When the bottom is cooked, flip it again to cook the other side of the second piece of bread.
- Cut into diagonal quarters and serve with a little extra filling and berries. Optional: If you really want to impress company (or your kids), you can add a dollop of real whipped cream.

Looks yummy! Saved it to make for my kids someday. I love the pan, by the way. Bought it a few years ago after you recommended it. I use it at home and it has gone on trips with us to make breakfast and dinner in hotel rooms. It has also been great to have when traveling in our RV. Thank you for recommending it!
