Raspberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

An indulgent french toast stuffed with a raspberry cream cheese mixture. For those who detest bread pudding, soggy toast, and the like, fear not! This recipe gives you the perfect amount of crisp, and the thick slices prevent an over-absorption of the egg mixture; leaving the insides nice and bread-y. Breakfast in bed just got that much better.

  2. To prepare the toast, take your loaf and cut four thick slices; making each about 1 1/2-2 inches thick. With a small knife, carefully cut a slit in the top center of each slice to create a pocket, taking care not to cut all the way through to the other side.

  3. In a shallow baking dish or pie plate, whisk together the egg and milk. Whisk in the melted butter and vanilla. Stir in the flour, cinnamon, and salt and whisk until smooth (You'll likely have some flour bits no matter how much you whisk, that's fine!).

  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Fill the pocket of each slice of bread with some of the filling mixture. Place the filled slices of bread in the egg mixture, one or two at a time, soaking about 30-40 seconds per side. Remove the bread to a plate and allow the excess batter to drip off.
