Overnight Stuffed French Toast Recipe
This make-ahead breakfast recipe is a keeper!
While I definitely enjoy savory breakfast items, I really love sweet breakfast dishes…especially when bread is involved. If you like French toast, you need to try this recipe. This overnight stuffed French toast is not too sweet, not soggy, and not too dry either!
I am excited to have this stuffed French toast for our Christmas breakfast this year! I know my in-laws are going to love it too. For holidays, it is very convenient to be able to do nearly all of the prep the night before. In the morning, I will just throw it in the oven for about 25 minutes and whip up some fresh almond whipped cream topping. Yum!
I really love this cream cheese filling! It is slightly sweet, but with a light, tangy flavor too. Plus, it is easy and simple to whip up. You can try changing it up a bit by adding fruit or chocolate chips, if desired. Keep the filling thick though or your French toast sandwiches will be sliding all over the place.
You can keep your French bread slices whole or cut them in half if you want to fit a bit more into one pan. Either way works. Just be sure to slather that cream cheese filling on there in a nice, thick layer. 😉
Once you’ve got the bread all sliced, slathered, and placed in the pan, it is time to pour on the egg mixture. Mixing it up in a large batter bowl is handy for pouring! Let the bread soak it up for a few minutes, then flip, wrap, and refrigerate.
If you don’t want to make this a day in advance, I think you would still get great results by baking it not long after assembling, once all of the egg mixture has been soaked up into the bread.
I highly recommend the almond whipped cream topping! So very delicious and a perfect touch of sweetness with this stuffed French toast.
