Ya know, I'm not really a huge fan of French toast, but when you start stuffing it with other foods, I'm all over it! Regular French toast can be so boring. I like it, but I'm not 'Wowed' by it. This...I was 'Wowed' by this!
This was definitely a hearty little sandwich! I made it for myself last weekend while Heath and Jesse were out doing their thing. I made it more as a late breakfast, early lunch kinda meal, and totally hit the spot. Very filling!
You can use whatever flavor jam you prefer. The recipe says either Raspberry or Strawberry (I used Strawberry), but I don't see why you couldn't use something else like blackberry or grape. I definitely recommend trying this if it's up your alley. I know I'll be making it again. I gotta say though, my favorite is still the Stuffed French Toast recipe I found at Kraft. I think it's the cream cheese...I do love cream cheese ;)
'Deluxe French Toast Sandwich'
Source: Life As A Lofthouse
1/2 lb thinly sliced Honey Ham
4 slices Mozzarella cheese
8 thick pieces French bread or Texas Toast
2 Eggs, beaten
1/4 cup Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
Raspberry or Strawberry Jam
1. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Spray with non-stick spray.
2. Lay 4 pieces of bread out. Top each piece with 4 slices of the honey ham, then top each with one piece of mozzarella cheese. Top with remaining pieces of bread.
3. In a medium bowl mix together eggs, milk and vanilla. Dip each sandwich carefully into the egg mixture, while holding it on both sides so the filling won't fall out. Dip again on the other side.
4. Place one sandwich onto the skillet or griddle and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve with jam and a sprinkling of powdered sugar if desired.
*You can keep the sandwiches in a 200 degree oven to keep warm while you prepare the others*
