Stuffed French Toast

This is a nostalgic favorite of mine. We actually had it at a restaurant when we were on our honeymoon. It’s become a very special favorite of both of us. We usually have it with Mimosas (orange juice and champagne) since that’s what we ate for our first breakfast as a married couple. And this recipe is for 2 people but it’s easily expanded for more.

Ingredients
4 slices texas toast
3 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 cup cream cheese softened
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1 tablespoon honey
raspberry jam
butter
powdered sugar

In a bowl combine cream cheese, pecans and honey. Mix together well and put into a zip bag with the tip cut off. Set aside. Take the toast and cut a small slice into the side of the bread. Cut through the slice into the bread and make a pocket in the inside, like you were making a stuffed chicken breast or pork chop. Stick the cut tip of the bag of cream cheese into the slice in the side of the bread and squeeze about 1/4 of the mixture into the bread. Use your fingers to gently spread the mixture inside the toast by pressing on the sides of the bread. In a large enough bowl whisk together egg, milk, nutmeg and allspice. Dip the bread into the egg mixture and cook in a skillet with melted butter on medium heat until cooked on both sides. Melt raspberry jam in a small bowl in the microwave. Top the french toast with powdered sugar and raspberry jam syrup. Enjoy!
