Stuffed Brioche French Toast Recipe

French toast, also known as eggy bread, German toast, Bombay toast, Spanish toast, gypsy toast, or poor knights (of Windsor), is a dish made of bread soaked in milk, then in beaten eggs and then fried, a variation from the traditional Spanish dessert known as Torrija.

Stuffed brioche French toast is one of my favorite variation of this kind of toast that I prepare often for the weekend as a breakfast or sometimes even as a fast lunch – when I don’t have much time or ingredients to prepare something else. So, the choice is yours! The only thing I can promise for sure is the taste – simply delicious! Here is the recipe:

Serves: 4 

Ingredients:

  • 1 14 oz. a loaf of Brioche bread
  • ½ cup cooking Sherry
  • ½ cup of golden raisins
  • 3 eggs
  • Splash of milk
  • Cinnamon
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • ½ a package or 4 oz. of cream cheese – at room temperature
  • cooking oil
  • Favorite syrup
  • Blackberries or some other fruit of your choice for garnish

 

Instructions:

  • Slice brioche bread into 1½” thick pieces – about 4 thick slices from one loaf. Don’t use the ends for this recipe.
  • Create a pocket in each slice by cutting a slit in the center — don’t go all the way to the edges.
  • Meanwhile in a small saucepan – gently heat cooking sherry and raisins to plump them up. Continue heating until most of the sherry has dissolved. Set aside and allow to cool.
  • Combine room temperature cream cheese with ricotta in a large bowl and blend well. Add in raisins and a few dashes of cinnamon and mix again.
  • Generously fill each of your 4 slices of bread with the cheese mixture.
  • Beat eggs, add a splash of milk and add a few dashes of cinnamon — beat again until mixed well.
  • Heat a large frying pan with enough cooking oil to cover the bottom of the pan.
  • When oil is hot, dip each side of the bread slices in the egg mixture and fry in your pan for about 2 minutes each side until you have a light, golden brown color.
  • Remove from pan and place on paper towel to soak up excess oil.
  • Serve with fruit of your choice and favorite syrup.
