You'll Never Want Plain French Toast Again

Friday, July 25, 2008


I found this recipe at Rachael Ray. It is amazing! Pretty easy to put together, and definitely worth the effort. Next time you want to impress someone at breakfast, serve this. If they're not impressed, they probably weren't worth impressing anyhow.

Stuffed French Toast

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup jam or jelly
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash salt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 8 slices bread
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • whipped topping

Mix the jelly and 3 tbsp water. Heat until smooth and warm, stirring occasionally. Set aside, but keep warm.

Mix milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt with a wire whisk. Transfer the mixture into a shallow bowl.

Spread each slice of bread with about 1 tbsp peanut butter. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over 4 slices, and top with the remaining slices of bread (peanut butter sides down).

Soak the sandwiches one at a time in the milk and egg mixture. About 5 seconds should do it, and depending on how large your bowl is, you may need to turn the sandwiches to soak the other sides.

Melt 1/2 tbsp butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 sandwiches and cook until golden, about 2 minutes on each side. Repeat with the remaining butter and sandwiches.

Serve with the whipped cream and jam syrup.

Mmm... that looks good. That has to be unhealthy somehow though. Oh well, I still need to try it.
