Nothing says it’s the weekend like a big brunch, especially if it’s something sweet you normally don’t (or can’t) eat on a rushed weekday morning. We love all kinds of brunch foods, from eggs benedict to buttermilk pancakes, but sometimes we start craving that delicious, caramelized crunch on the edge of good French toast.
French toast is tasty enough on its own, but it’s even better when it’s stuffed with fruit and cream cheese to add texture, flavor and a little extra adventure. To “stuff” the toast, we just cut a slit in extra-thick bread slices to create a pocket, then spread the inside with a cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon mixture before adding banana slices.
To really put this French toast breakfast over the top, we replaced maple syrup with caramel syrup. Beware, this was an addictive transformation of your typical French toast. A little whipped cream and a few more banana slices topped everything off before we dove into this fluffy, caramel-sweetened stack of heaven. You won’t want to let another weekend go by without making these.
