Savory stuffed French toast

I admit it. I’ve had a lifelong love affair with French toast.

When I was a kid, there was a simple magic to it: The way the soaked bread would puff in the pan, the toast crisping to a rich, golden brown in the hot fat. Fresh out of the pan, the dish was topped with a sprinkling of powdered sugar, like a dusting of fresh snow. This was dessert for breakfast -- it almost felt wrong. With each bite, the crisp, almost brittle crust would give way to a tender, soft-as-a-pillow interior, subtle with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg and fragrant notes of vanilla.

As I started to cook for myself, it became a go-to recipe for its sheer ease and simplicity.

French toast remains a favorite breakfast choice. Done right, there’s an unpretentious beauty to this classic comfort food. But there is an art to French toast.

Sometimes there’s nothing as tempting as a plate of crisp, thick slices piled high on a plate with a sprinkling of sugar. But this is one dish that’s not limited to the classic presentation. Try soaking the toast overnight, then baking it as a casserole the next morning the toast will swell like a souffle in the oven as the scent of spiced custard fills the house. Or try stuffing the bread before frying, hiding a pocket of soft cheese, maybe chocolate or even a savory filling inside. This is one dish that’s not limited to the skillet, or even the breakfast plate.

Great French toast starts with the bread, but though almost any bread can be used in a French toast recipe, enriched breads with a loose structure, such as brioche or challah, are favorites. Still, whole-grain breads can give the toast an almost rustic appeal.

Slice the bread thick -- about an inch-- so there is still plenty of soft interior after the exterior of the bread crisps. Let the slices dry a little -- dry bread, like a dry sponge, will absorb the custard batter more readily.

With the custard, it’s all about the ratio of dairy to eggs. Recipes will vary -- a few eggs can be whisked with as little as a couple of tablespoons or as much as a cup of dairy. The more dairy, the lighter the custard less dairy means a heavier, richer custard with the egg more prominent. And though milk works fine in the custard base, nothing beats the richness and silky texture of cream.

Add other flavors to the custard with a light hand, so as not to interfere too much with the toppings. Vanilla or almond extract will add a little richness, citrus zest will brighten the flavors and a dash of liqueur will add extra personality. A little spice -- cinnamon, nutmeg -- is classic, and a pinch of star anise, cardamom or allspice might add an exotic note. Or try a little chile powder, paprika or garlic for a savory take on the dish.

Leave the bread in the custard long enough to get soaked through but not completely saturated, maybe a couple of minutes on each side, depending on the bread. Then gently fry the bread in a hot skillet lightly coated with fat. Butter is traditional (and nothing beats the flavor of a little browned butter), though it can burn if not watched closely. Clarified butter or a neutral oil also works well. For more robust flavor, go with a hardier fat, such as bacon grease.

And though a skillet or griddle is the most common, it is by no means the only way to cook French toast. Try cooking it in a waffle iron or even a panini press (great for stuffed French toast). If using a skillet, make sure it is heavy enough to evenly heat, and cover the toast as it’s frying so it cooks evenly.

French toast can also be baked. Bread slices are assembled in a baking dish with the custard poured over to soak. Baked like a casserole, the toast souffles in the oven, still crisp but much more like a bread pudding in texture.

Maybe the best thing about baked French toast is that virtually all the work is done ahead of time. Assemble the dish the night before to soak and refrigerate it. The next morning, remove the baking dish from the fridge as the oven heats so it can warm slightly (for even baking). Top the bread with whatever you want, then put it in the oven. In less than an hour, breakfast is ready. It’s a perfect dish when you have houseguests.

There must be a reason stuffed French toast seems to be showing up on more menus lately. Maybe because you can never have too much of a good thing. Slices of battered bread are sandwiched around a variety of fillings --jams, cream cheese, mascarpone -- before frying, then plated with a wide variety of sauces, glazes and toppings.

Methods vary, but the process is fairly simple: Use thinner slices of bread and batter them as you would for classic French toast (batter on one side only if you have a particularly moist filling). Then fill the sandwich. Use a thick jam or a fruit compote, try a flavored or herbed soft cheese or even a spread (Nutella, anyone?). Spoon the filling onto one side of the sandwich, leaving enough room around the edge so the filling does not spill out as the French toast cooks. Then gently fry over moderate heat, keeping the pan covered so the sandwich cooks evenly. Voila.

And the method works great with savory fillings. Take what you have in the refrigerator and improvise -- maybe a little caramelized onion, cheese, bacon and leftover dandelion greens. Served with a tart salad and a glass of wine, it makes a perfect meal to close the day.

Chocolate Stuffed French Toast Waffles

I hope you have a waffle maker… and if you don’t I hope you purchase one. I have three a standard, a Belgian, and a waffle cone maker. I am an extreme waffle fan. This particular waffle is really nice. It has a slight oat taste- not all the way like oatmeal, but tasting in that direction. You can simply make the waffles and top them with fruit and syrup…

…or you can take it all the way, stuff it with chocolate and cook the whole thing as French Toast. You could make the sandwiches the night before and cook the French Toast Waffle in the morning.

I made them cute my cutting them with cookie cutters before “French Toasting” them. Then I served them with the leftover chocolate filling.

Chocolate Stuffed French Toast Waffles Recipe

1 1/2 cups oat flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free)- measure “loose” not packed
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons honey, agave or maple syrup
3/4-1 cup rice milk (or other milk)

1/4 cup almond butter
1 tablespoon cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
2-3 tablespoons maple syrup (or other sweetener)
rice milk

2 eggs
splash rice milk
pinch cinnamon

Combine the dry waffle ingredients and the wet ingredients separately. Then mix together. Add a bit of milk as needed to get a thick but pourable batter. Preheat a standard waffle maker. Make the waffles it should make about 4.

Combine the filling ingredients. Sweeten to taste and add milk to achieve a thick spreadable chocolate spread (like Nutella). Spread generously on the waffles forming sandwiches. Cut on the “lines” into 4 pieces each.

Whisk the eggs, milk, and cinnamon together in a pie pan. Preheat a pan on medium-low with a thin layer of oil. Dip both sides of the sandwiches in the egg mixture and cook on both sides.

Ratings & Comments

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I enjoy all your recipe's, so very much ! Thanks.

This was a great breakfast treat. I substituted mascarpone for the cream cheese filling and used an Ezekial muffins instead of bread. I, like Jacki2954, added cinnamon to the egg mixture with a dash of nutmeg. YUM!

Love this recipe. I use milk and add a little cinnamon to the egg mixture.

I certainly don't want to hurt anyone's feelings but I don't understand the point of commenting on these recipes if you haven't even tried them yet. I really look forward to reading the "reviews" from those who have have actually tried them. Maybe that's the difference between "commenting" and "reviewing"?

Even worse than a random comment, I don't understand how anyone can RATE a recipe if they haven't tried it yet. There's a box you can check to not rate the recipe if you haven't made it -- use it!

what is half- and- half,it or can i use something substitute for it.

1/2 & 1/2 is. 1/2 milk and 1/2 heavy cream. I generally just use milk.

You can also use regular milk, just play with the recipe , i also used wheat bread insted of white bread.

Could a person use the flavored cream cheese (blueberry or strawberry) instead of plain??

Don't know why not. Sounds delicious.

use french bread instead of raisin bread, add a tablespoon of strawberry jam on top of cream cheese layer, then follow all other directions. really good!

YUMMM!! Any flavor of jam or preserves would work well..cherry was good!

Step One: Choose Your Bread

To get started on this breakfast dish, you’ll first want to decide what kind of bread component you want to use for your French toast. Classic French toast generally uses brioche, although French baguettes and Italian loaves can be used as well. Texas toast, another popular option, is a particularly good choice for fluffy, American diner-style French toast, and sliced Challah makes for arguably the most luxurious French toast you’ve ever eaten. Even pound cake can be used to create a decadent French toast. Really, any sliceable bread-like entity can be used for French toast as long as it’s both absorbent and structurally sound enough to be soaked in a liquid without falling completely apart. That’s why, if you buy or make an unsliced loaf, you’ll want to cut the slices thick. It’s also why you’ll want to look for thick slices if you’re using a pre-sliced loaf.

If you decide to go with homemade bread, try making the dish a day or two after the bread has been baked. Slightly older/stale bread will generally have slightly heartier texture, and will hold together better in the final dish.
