Man was this good! I fixed this for my husband who saw the commercial on TV about the french toast at IHOP and said he wanted that! I used whole wheat bread and halved the recipe. Of course after I tasted it I fixed the rest of the recipe!I didn't have fresh strawberries so I put a spoonful of strawberry jam on top of a dollop of sour cream, then drizzled the whole thing with maple syrup. So yummy! Thanks so much Evelyn for this scrumptious recipe!!!!!
This is a family favorite now.
My husband and I had this for dinner a couple of nights ago and it was amazing. We'd never had stuffed french toast before, but commercials have always made it look REALLY good. This recipe certainly did not disappoint! The directions were easy to follow, and the key really does seem to be frying the toast low and slow to make it crisp, golden, and with a perfectly warmed creamy filling. I used Texas toast for the bread and topped it with a homemade strawberry syrup made from frozen strawberries. So decadent and extremely delicious. Thank you SO much for sharing this new family favorite!
