Blueberry and Cream Cheese-Stuffed French Toast

From Chef Lesli Sommerdorf for Harmons

Difficulty: 1

Total Time: 45 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1/2 loaf Harmons brioche

Filling

  • 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 (6 oz) container blueberries

French Toast

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter or oil for frying
  • Warm maple syrup for serving
  • Powdered sugar for garnish

Directions

Cut bread into 1 ½” slices. Then, cut each slice 3/4 of the way through bread to form a pocket.

In a large bowl, add cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar and blend until well combined. Add blueberries and fold to combine.

Place about 2 heaping tablespoons of cream cheese-blueberry mixture inside pocket of each slice of bread and press closed. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, add cream, milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and whisk to combine.

Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Grease with butter.

Soak each side of each bread slice in cream-egg mixture, about 10 seconds each side, and place on griddle. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook until golden on first side, about 5 minutes. Turn over and cook on second side until golden, about 5 minutes.

Serve with maple syrup. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if using.
