I have been driving back and forth from Ottawa to Longueuil these past weeks. My cousin passed away from a heart attack, at 54, and he left me everything in his apartment. Since he owned a lot of stuff I had to sort and sell everything or donate to friends and family. Every morning before driving 2 1/2 hours to his place I would grab a quick breakfast and sometimes would eat on the road. We came back at midnight, last night, from Québec and I decided to make something else than toast this morning.
This month's Kraft Canada #WhatsCooking assignment is 'the long-awaited weekend breakfast'. I started to browse the French Toast Recipes and came across this recipe for Chocolate-Stuffed French Toast. Before I could even think about it, breakfast was on the table. Stuffed French toast is probably one of the greatest breakfast food. It's easy and quick to make, even your little ones can make them. When you think about it, it's simply two pieces of bread filled with something delicious in the middle. For this recipe you bake the french toast in the oven. It can't get any easier then that. That would be a great breakfast to serve on Christmas morning. Top your French Toast with maple syrup and nuts, if you wish!
CHOCOLATE-STUFFED FRENCH TOAST
12 slices challah (egg bread), 1/2 inch thick
1/2 cup Philadelphia Chocolate Cream Cheese Product
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Here's the link to the recipe.
