This recipe started out being a baked french toast recipe, but I have tried baked french toast before, and neither my husband nor I liked it, so I was hesitant to try it again. Instead, I decided to put all the goodies inside the bread instead, and then cook it like normal french toast. The results were delicious!!! My husband rarely requests anything special for breakfast, but this one made the request list.
The blueberries can be substituted for Strawberries, Raspberries, Peaches or any other fruit your heart desires!
Or try this new recipe I made: Blueberry Sauce
Start by making the blueberry sauce. Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to a low simmer, and continue to stir constantly. Simmer for about 2-3 minutes.
Combine the softened cream cheese with 1/2 cup of the blueberry sauce and mix thoroughly. Spread this mixture onto each piece of Texas toast. Press two pieces firmly together, with the filling inside the pieces, to ensure they stick, but without pushing the filling out.
Preheat the griddle to 350 F.
Mix eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Dip the bread into the egg mixture and place on griddle. Cook till golden brown and then flip the toast to the other side. Spread a little butter on the tops of each piece of toast.
When the bottom side is also browned, remove from griddle and serve on a plate topped with additional Blueberry Sauce.
