How to Make Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast
French Toast is a delicious breakfast that may seem difficult but is actually very simple to make. It only really requires a few staple ingredients: bread, peanut butter, milk or cream, eggs, and flavorings like cinnamon, vanilla, or anything your taste buds desire.
To make French Toast, simply mix together the cream, eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla in a bowl. Make a basic peanut butter sandwich with the bread and peanut butter. Soak both sides of your sandwich in the egg mixture so they are sufficiently coated, and place the soaked bread in a pan.
This gives your bread the indulgent eggy and rich taste that French toast is known for.
French Toast can be made on any cooking surface like a griddle or skillet. The easiest method is to place the toast in a buttered skillet.
Type of Bread
French Toast can be made using any type of bread so feel free to use whatever bread you have. That being said, there are some types of bread that make a tastier French Toast.
This recipe calls for Brioche bread. Brioche is a buttery, eggy bread that is light and very fluffy. Because it is so fluffy, it will have a more appealing taste when soaked in the egg and cream mixture.
Other good breads that work well as French Toast include French Bread, sourdough, Challah, and a firm white bread. The trick is picking a sturdy bread that can soak in the mixture without falling apart.
Another great tip when choosing your bread is to use day old bread or even stale bread because this will help the bread absorb more of the egg mixture.
Type of Milk or Cream for a 700 calorie breakfast
When making your egg mixture, you can use whatever milk, cream, or milk substitute you prefer.
