V-Day Breakfast for Two! How to Make Stuffed French Toast

Romance is in the air and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. And guess what? Nothing says “I love you” more than breakfast in bed. This February 14th, treat your SO to Stuffed Challah Bread French Toast and Raspberry Champagne Cocktails. (Single? These recipes would also kill at a Galentine’s Day brunch.)

Stuffed Challah Bread French Toast

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf challah bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar + 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces whipped cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/3 cup raspberry jam
  • maple syrup
  • powdered sugar, for dusting

Directions:

  1. To make the batter, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar in a large bowl. Whisk until combined.
  2. To make the filling, fold together the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons sugar, lemon zest, raspberry jam and 1/3 cup raspberries.
  3. Cut the challah bread into 2-inch-thick slices. Then, use your knife to cut a pocket in each slice of bread. Spoon a tablespoon of filling into each pocket.
  4. Dip each piece of challah bread into the batter. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add two pieces of toast. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden. Repeat with remaining pieces of toast. Serve with maple syrup, powdered sugar and fresh raspberries.
