To celebrate my kitchen getting unpacked, I made this unhealthy and delicious Stuffed French Toast recipe for breakfast. Well sorta. I didn’t have half the ingredients, so I jerry-rigged it a bit. I’m a big believer in ghetto cooking. Ok this is what I did:

Firstly, I took this beautiful loaf of Italian bread.

Nextly, I cut it up into slices approximately 2 inches wide, and then cut a cute little pocket in the middle of it.

Nextly, I’m a separate bowl, I mixed one package of cream cheese with some suga (I’d say about a quarter cup) and some peach preserves (maybe a quarter cup again. I mixed it real good until it was a creamy peachy glop. I wanted to use strawberries, but apparently my strawberry preserves ran off an joined the circus while we were moving.

Nextly, I jammed a heaping spoonful of my yummy, cream cheesey mixture into the pocket of the sliced bread and I pressed the opening of the pocket closed for fryin. I thought this part would be icky, but it was actually extremely easy.

Ok next, in a separate bowl, I mixed 2 eggs and about half a cup of milk together and put my stuffed bread in there and soaked it on each side. Yes, I know, this mixture traditionally has some cinnamon in it. However, my super picky eater of a hubby does not like french toast if the cinnamon is added prior to cooking it, he only likes it lightly sprinkled after the fact. I just love that guy.

Next, I slapped about 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet and heated it up until the butter was melted. Once the butter melted, I threw my stuffed, soaked bread in there and cooked it for approximately 3 minutes on each side. It didn’t take long for the bread to get nicely toasted and the filling to get heated up. I got distracted at this part, and forgot to take a pic, so instead, here is a picture of my adorable baby giggling.

Once the bread was nicely toasted, I just sprinkled some powdered sugar on those suckers and we ate them covered in syrup. I loved every bite and then felt utterly disgusting afterwards. Thats how you know it’s good!

That is all. The end.
