Memories of Hawaii Stuffed French Toast

Memories of Hawaii Stuffed French Toast

This is a recipe that I brought back from my trip to Hawaii. This stuffed french toast puts me in the holiday mood during my weekend brunch.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Sliced bread (8-slice loaf)
4 slices
Cream cheese
50 g
Jam
2-3 tablespoons
☆Egg
1
☆Milk
100 ml
☆Granulated sugar or caster sugar
1 tablespoon
☆Vanilla extract
5 shakes
Butter
10 g
Maple syrup
to taste

Steps

1. Spread a slice of bread with half of the cream cheese and another slice with half the mango jam. Sandwich together, cut in half and do the same with the other 2 slices.
2. Combine the ☆ ingredients well and dip both sides of the sandwiches into the mixture (I recommend using 2 spatulas so that the sandwiches don't fall apart).
3. Melt the butter in a frying pan and cook both sides until golden (flip the sandwiches over with 2 spatulas for this step as well).
4. Transfer the french toast to a plate, pour maple syrup and serve. If you like, you could serve with powdered sugar or some cream.
5. Lulu's (in Waikiki) makes these filled with cream cheese and passion fruit or pineapple jam. It's delicious, but impossible to finish!
