Easy Stuffed French Toast

Anyone else love delectable, and nearly sinful, stuffed french toast? Yeah, me too. Does just thinking about the calories and fat in this little dish of yummyness make you cringe? Yeah, me too. Is there a super healthy way to make this warm and delicious treat? I don't know. But, I do have a way that's probably a little healthier than a breakfast joint's version. Probably. Maybe. Anyway, it's easy enough that anyone can make it at home and that's a plus right? And even better, it's yummy.

  • A loaf of sliced bread
  • 1 container of cream cheese
  • Your favorite jelly/jam/preserves
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar

Heat a frying pan and coat with cooking spray. In a decent sized but shallow bowl or dish, whisk together the eggs, milk and cinnamon.Grab a slice of bread and spread on a layer of cream cheese. You want it thick enough to be noticeable but not too thick. Next grab a spoon and spread some of your favorite jelly/jam/preserves on top of the cream cheese. I'll leave the amount up to you as the jelly is really what determines the sweetness of the dish. Grab another slice of bread and place it on top. Dip the entire sandwich in the egg mixture then fry until golden brown. Garnish with powdered sugar and serve.
