Stuffed French Toast Recipe Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Bread: Thick slices work best for holding the filling. Brioche, Texas toast, or challah are excellent choices for a richer flavor, but regular sandwich bread, sourdough, or cinnamon swirl bread would also be delicious.
  • Filling: Nutella, jelly, and cream cheese are popular, but don’t hesitate to try peanut butter, sliced bananas, or even savory options like ham and cheese.
  • Flour: Helps thicken the egg mixture, ensuring it coats the bread evenly without being too runny.
  • Milk & Eggs: The base of the custard soak that gives the toast its tender texture.
  • Brown Sugar & Cinnamon: Adds sweetness and warmth.
  • Butter: For cooking. Can be replaced with a plant-based substitute or a non-stick spray for a lighter option.

Flavor Combinations

Stuffed French toast is a great opportunity to get creative with your flavor combinations. Here are some popular options to get you started:

  • Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chips
  • Cream Cheese + Jam
  • Cream Cheese + Berries
  • Nutella + Berries


Stuffed French toast is delicious on its own, but it can be taken to the next level with some tasty toppings. Here are some serving suggestions to consider:

  • Fresh berries + whipped cream
  • A dusting of powdered sugar
  • A drizzle of maple syrup


  • Soggy Toast: Ensure your bread is thick enough to absorb the egg mixture without falling apart. A quick soak is key – too long and it will become soggy.
  • Filling Leaking Out: Seal the edges of your bread well. If using very runny fillings, use less to prevent leakage.
  • Not Cooking Through: Cook on a lower heat for a longer time to ensure the middle is done without burning the outside.

Tips From the Chef

  • Use day-old bread for better absorption and structure.
  • Use low to medium-low heat for the filling to fully warm through without burning the outside.
  • Let the cooked French toast rest for a minute before serving; it allows the filling to set slightly.

When is Stuffed French toast ready?

  • Color: Look for a golden-brown exterior.
  • Texture: The outside should be slightly crisp, while the inside remains soft and custardy.
  • Firmness: It should hold together well but give slightly under pressure to indicate the filling is warm and melted.

Make-Ahead Tips

For a quicker morning routine, mix the egg batter the night before and keep chilled until ready to use.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

  • Refrigerator: Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
  • Reheating: Warm a skillet over medium-low heat. Add a little butter or oil, then place the French toast in the skillet. Heat until warm and crispy, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
