Breakfast on the weekends is a special occasion, like a vacation at home, because it gives us a chance to slow down and be lazy. A recent road trip inspired this recipe. See for yourself how delicious it is!

How To Make the best stuffed french toast

  • 1
    Spread about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese onto a slice of sourdough, then 1 tablespoon of apricot jam onto another slice. Sandwich the two slices together and set aside.
  • 2
    Repeat the process.
  • 3
    Store sandwiches in a plastic bread bag and chill in the fridge overnight or at least 15 minutes. 5 minutes in the freezer if you're in a hurry to eat!
  • 4
    In a shallow dish, beat eggs and combine with milk, vanilla and lemon zest. This is what I call the custard.
  • 5
    Add butter to a nonstick pan and heat on medium. Use two pans if all 4 sandwiches will not fit onto one.
  • 6
    Remove the sandwiches from the fridge/freezer and remove from the plastic bag. Dip a sandwich each side in the custard and gently lay onto the pan, taking care not to splatter any hot butter. Repeat the process and cook the sandwiches 2 minutes on each side.

    Serve warm with Grade B maple syrup and freshly brewed tea and or coffee.
