I love breakfast foods, but oddly enough, not usually at breakfast time. Maybe this is why my family tends to eat a very light in the mornings. But they really enjoy it when I make breakfast for dinner. This recipe for stuffed cinnamon french toast is one I’ve been making for years now. It’s become a comfort food to the kiddos.
If you’re a fan of the recipes I share here at Just a Little Creativity, then you’re probably like me and prefer simple but tasty dishes. Well here’s another one that you’re definitely going to get some high-fives for!
Because breakfast is the theme for this month’s Ultimate Recipe Challenge, I knew this would be the perfect time to share this deliciousness with you.
Stuffed Cinnamon French Toast Breakfast Recipe
1 loaf of Italian bread without sesame seeds (unless you just like them on your bread)
1 cup of ricotta cheese
1 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
In medium bowl, combine cinnamon & sugar and mix well.
Add ricotta cheese and stir until well blended.
Spread mixture between two slices of bread, and put together sandwich style, set aside.
Combine eggs & milk, mix well.
Dip each side of the stuffed french toast sandwich in the egg and milk mixture until it soaks in really well.
Spray griddle or skillet with non-stick spray and cook french toast on each side on medium heat, until warm all the way through (definitely make sure the ricotta mixture in the middle is warm all the way through).
*You may need to make more of the egg & milk mixture to dip your sandwiches in, depending on how much your bread soaks in, so plan your ingredients accordingly.
Serve warm topped with syrup or powdered sugar (or both).
I’m always messy when I cook, and it never fails that I’ll end up doing everything in the smallest area possible. Am I the only one who does this? I have a large working area, and then I realize I’ve put myself in a corner. Who knows, maybe that’s just me.
I use a square plastic container to hold the egg & milk mixture, then I form the sandwich and let it soak in the mixture for about 30 seconds to a minute on each side before I cook it on the skillet.
These stuffed cinnamon french toast sandwiches are great alone, or paired with other breakfast items such as fresh fruit, bacon, sausage, and hash browns.
