Stuffed French Toast

This one is as easy to make as it is good to eat. Happy brunching!

8 slices of Whole Wheat Bread
4 Eggs
2 T Milk
1 t Cinnamon
1 t Vanilla

1 8oz pkg Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 c Powdered Sugar (more if you like it sweeter)
1 t Vanilla
2 c Crushed fruit (can add a bit of sugar to sweeten)

1. Warm up your griddle to get it sizzling medium/hot.
2. Wisk together egg, milk, vanilla, & cinnamon
3. Dip bread in egg and place on medium heated griddle, grease with butter or oil spray.
4. Patiently wait until first side is golden brown before flipping. Flip over and brown second side.
5. Serve up or store on cooling rack to avoid getting soggy.
6. Blend together cream cheese, powdered sugar, & vanilla until creamy and light.
7. Spread a layer of filling mixture on one slice of french toast. Spoon crushed fruit on filling and place second piece of french toast on top. Finish with a few more crushed berries over french toast. You can garnish with more filling or whipped cream.
8. Extra filling can be refrigerated for later use. (great on vanilla wafers, but that's another post)

COSTS: $3.48
Bread $.45 ($.90 loaf at Aunt Millie Bread Store)
Eggs $.33 (Aldi's or Meijer sale $1 dozen)
Cream Cheese $1 (Aldi's)
Powdered Sugar $.20
Strawberries $1.50 (Meijer sale)

Use french bread and a bit more egg
Fruits - Peaches, Blueberries, Strawberries, Mango, Blackberries, Raspberries, Mixture
Use pancakes instead of french toast - very good!!

Any other stuffing suggestions?
