Refrigerated

  • 1 Eggs

Condiments

  • 1 Flavor fruit spread

Baking & Spices

  • 1 Cinnamon

Bread & Baked Goods

  • 1 French bread

Dairy

  • 1 Butter
  • 4 oz Cream cheese
  • 1 Skim milk

  3. In a bowl, place the room temperature cream cheese and three tablespoons of fruit spread of your choice.
  4. In a separate bowl, break 2 eggs; add cinnamon and milk and combine well.
  5. Now, take fruit mixture and stuff into the ‘pockets’ of your french bread slices. Place on a baking sheet.
  6. When done stuffing each piece of bread, completely coat each piece in egg mixture. Make sure all sides are covered. Do all pieces before starting to fry.
  7. Put 2 tbsp (you can use less!) of butter into a hot skillet and melt completely. Add all of the bread to the skillet and cook roughly about 3-6 minutes on each side, until it reaches a nice golden brown. You want to make sure the cream cheese mixture heats through.

Red Velvet French Toast With Vanilla Bean Cheesecake Filling

Ingredients

Vegetarian

Produce

  • 1 Raspberries, Fresh

Refrigerated

  • 4 Eggs

Condiments

  • 1 tsp Vanilla bean paste

Baking & Spices

  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 2/3 tbsp Food colouring, red
  • 4 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract, pure

Bread & Baked Goods

  • 8 slices Bread

  • 1 8oz (250g) tub Cream cheese, reduced fat

DIRECTIONS

  1. For French Toast: Whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, sugar, vanilla, food coloring and cocoa in a shallow bowl until smooth and lump free.

  3. Dip bread slices into egg wash and press lightly a few times to soak through completely. Flip each slice and repeat with each bread until slices all are evenly coated.
  4. Heat a large nonstick pan/skillet over low-medium heat and fry the bread in batches of 3 or 4, turning once until just cooked through. Remove and place onto a warmed plate.

Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of filling onto 6 toast halves; spread to evenly coat; top with remaining toast halves to create a sandwich. Drizzle with melted chocolate; top with remaining cream (optional); dust with icing/confectioners sugar and serve with berries.
