The french toast came out very very soggy, and everything kept falling apart. If you make it, try to only use a little jam and a little cream cheese, and be prepared for it to fall apart. Try not to soak it too long - just the outside, so the "sandwich" doesn't become a soggy nasty mess.
My DH is in love with stuffed French toast from IHOP -- I have been looking for a recipe that is similar and this one came pretty close! Both he and I enjoyed it! I used regular white bread instead of the french bread suggested and it did not hold up well. Next time I will use a thicker slice of bread as the recipe indicates! Great recipe, thanks for posting!!
Mmmmmm...yummy!! I halved this recipe and it turned out so great! I made it for Christmas brunch this morning, and everyone loved it! I used Texas Toast for the bread, and used grape jelly instead of tomato jam. Also used 1/2 soy milk, 1/2 skim milk. I switched it up and made two of the sandwiches with lite strawberry cream chees, and the other one with lite regular cream cheese. Thanks!! :-)
Great recipe! I made it this today on a snowy December morning and it really hit the spot. I used raspberry jam as well and I halved the recipe (since there is only two of us!). Thank you!
Excellent! This makes for a perfect addition to a brunch menu. Looks decadent and tastes great! I didn't manage to find tomato jam, used raspberry ... seeds and all ... loved every bite! We all loved this French Toast Extraordinaire, and have added it to my Brunch recipes. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.
Wonderrful! I use the french toast recipe part all the time even when I don't take the time to make the actual cream cheese filling. It has become a staple in our house! Sometimes we substitute orange juice for the lemon juice and that works well too.
This recipe began it's life a very long time ago as a Monte Cristo sandwich. Nice to see a new twist on it instead of the ham and cheese done this way with powdered sugar on top jam on the side. This method is nothing new and this way it is a nice new taste for a time tested method. Nice to see it here, thank you. I also reduced the milk and found that helpful. There are many many things to fill with using this method, nearly endless possibilities!
This is such a remarkable recipe. I was looking for some major "comfort" food and this was just what I was in need of... food fit for a queen! I used challah for this, and used lingonberry instead of the tomato jam. I couldnt believe something so delicious was completed in so little time :) Thanks girl!
I used Jellyqueen's Sourdough French Bread Sourdough French Bread as well as her Strawberry Figs Strawberry Figs. While the flavor combinations are wonderful my only complaint with this recipe is that there was too much milk in the batter. I reduced the amount of milk by about half of what called for and had more than enough. I also accidentally added more than the 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks
