  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup filling (whipped cream cheese, nutella, ricotta, etc.)

  • 2 tablespoons butter and/or olive oil


  1. In a pie pan or a dish with a high lip, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Then sprinkle cinnamon over the top.

  2. For the first method (classic stuffed French toast), spread some filling inside two pieces of bread. Then dip each outer side of the bread in the egg batter.

  3. For the second method, spread some filling in the center of two pieces of soft sandwich bread. Trim off the crusts. Then use the prongs of a fork to press the edges together. Then dip each outer side of the bread in the egg batter.

  4. Heat a nonstick pan or skillet to medium heat. Melt some butter and oil (or just one). Pan fry the preparred stuffed French toast for 2-3 minutes on each side.
