directions

  • Cut each slice of bread in half.
  • Beat eggs with milk and pinch of salt.
  • In separate bowl, mash cheese until smooth with cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla, adjusting to taste.
  • Spread one-fourth of cheese filling evenly over four slices of bread.
  • Top with unspread slices of bread to form half-sandwiches.
  • Dip and soak each sandwich in egg-milk mixture, turning so both sides of each sandwich absorb liquid.
  • Let excess drip off.
  • Heat unsalted butter in 10 inch skillet, and when hot but not brown, add sandwiches.
  • Reduce heat and fry slowly for 5 to 7 minutes, or until first side is golden.
  • Turn and brown second side over low heat.
  • If sandwiches fry too quickly, filling will not be warm.
  • Serve immediately, allowing 2 halves to each portion.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar and top with sour cream and strawberries.

    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!!!!!

    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!

I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
