Every time I make this stuffed french toast, it brings back the sweetest memories of my family on Saturday mornings gathered in the kitchen making breakfast together. 

As soon as my kids heard the crack of the eggs they’d run to push a stool next to me to help. Oh, how I treasure these memories!

And yes, I love a good classic french toast, but stuffed french toast is perfect for switching things up or any special day!

For Filling:

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 tbsp mascarpone cheese
  • 6-8 slices of bread
  • Sliced strawberries

For Batter:

  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg

Some additional tools you may need: 

  • Griddle or large pan
  • Tongs
  • Medium-sized mixing bowl

How to Make Stuffed French Toast

  • First, make the batter by adding the eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a bowl. 
  • Whisk together the batter until combined and set it aside.
  • Next, cut the crust of each of the pieces of bread.
  • Take a rolling pin and roll over the pieces of bread to flatten them. 
  • Take the mascarpone cheese and spread a thin layer on each slice of bread. 
  • Layer on some sliced strawberries and roll up the bread to make a spiral. Pinch the ends to keep the filling inside of the french toast.
  • Set the rolled pieces of bread aside and grab your batter as well as the cinnamon and sugar. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. 
  • Dip each french toast roll in the batter and place them on a hot, buttered griddle. 
  • Cook the french toast until it’s golden brown all the way around.
  • Top each stuffed french toast with the cinnamon sugar to finish them off and enjoy!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • For super-easy dipping, I like to pour my finished batter into a rectangular food storage container. Using a rectangle container is so much easier than dealing with the curved edges of the bowl when trying to dip my french toast!
  • If you want a chocolatey twist, try subbing out the mascarpone for Nutella! It’s absolutely amazing! Simply, spread Nutella on the bread in place of the cheese, top with the sliced berries as the recipe says, and top the cooked french toast in powdered sugar. You won’t regret it!
  • Make sure that you slice your strawberries pretty thin! If they are too thick you might find that it is difficult to roll the french toast well. Thin berries will make it so much easier. If you are wanting to have some extra strawberry flavor you could always chop some berries to serve right on top!

How can I make my strawberries sweeter?

Biting into your french toast and realizing your strawberries pack a tart punch is not the best surprise! A little tartness is great, but sometimes you can get a batch that is just plain sour!

To make sure that you have juicy sweet strawberries, slice them first and add them to a bowl. Add a few teaspoons of granulated sugar and give it a quick stir. Letting the strawberries sit and macerate for a half-hour while you are making your batter will make them much sweeter!

What bread is best for making french toast? 

You can really use any bread that you would like for french toast, but you’ll want to make sure that it’s thick enough and sturdy enough to hold the batter without falling apart!

We love to use brioche, Texas Toast, or a thickly sliced baguette!

Storage

Fridge

You’ll want to store any leftovers in the fridge. With the strawberry filling, the finished french toast will last about 1-2 days!

If you have any leftover batter that you haven’t used, you can store it in the fridge for 3-5 days.
