Berry Stuffed French Toast

Is it just me or does life get ridiculously crazy busy this time of year? I feel like I haven’t had much time to even breathe! I literally feel like I am just kinda bouncing around – and I’m mostly just along for the ride!
This is one of those posts I meant to have posted clear back before Thanksgiving – and life just kinda happened. Some of my FB fans may remember me saying our daughter had to be taken to the ER (not a fun experience) …. and with such a large family, it seems like one person got sick, and it just keeps getting spread around and around and around. I can honestly say, I’m ready for Spring! LOL.
Oh – and I am missing the longer days and more sunshine! I know some of y’all feel the same way on that! #FoodBloggerProblems
I don’t know how things usually are at your house on Christmas morning, but for us, my kiddos have been anxiously waiting for awhile now – and the anticipation is at it’s all time high in these few days leading up to Christmas and on Christmas morning. I like to make a special breakfast on Christmas morning – and to tell you the truth, my kiddos could careless about breakfast or probably eating for that matter …. they just wanna open presents and play! LOL. I’m sure when I was a kid, I felt the same! 😉
The great thing about this Berry Stuffed toast is you can make it ahead, the kiddos can rip into those gifts, you can enjoy the merriment – and everyone can eat afterwards! Pretty snazzy, huh?! Let’s see that recipe, shall we?!
- 12 slices cinnamon bread
- 2 cups berries (I used raspberries)
- 4 oz. Kroger GREEK cream cheese & GREEK yogurt bar
- 8 eggs
- 1 1/3 cup milk
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- Additional maple syrup, for serving
- Grease a 9x13-in. baking dish and set it aside.
- Spread cream cheese on one side of each slice of bread. Place 6 slices of bead into the prepared pan - cheese side up. Sprinkle with berries. Top with the remaining bread slices - cheese side down.
- In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk and maple syrup. Pour the mixture evenly over the top of the bread slices. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
- Refrigerate at least 8 hours. Bake, covered, at 350°F for 50 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10-15 minutes. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with additional maple syrup.
