Raspberry and Ricotta Cheese Stuffed French Toast

Category: Lunch/Snacks, Breakfast

 Ingredients List

  • 2 slices day old bread, preferably thick-sliced brioche (day old because slightly dried out bread will soak up the egg better)
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese (you can substitute whipped cream cheese, or softened cream cheese)
  • fresh raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil (I use grapeseed)
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • for serving: maple syrup and/or powdered sugar, more fresh raspberries


Aside the each of slice of bread with ¼-cup each of the ricotta cheese. Carefully dot one side with fresh raspberries. Close the sandwich with the other slice of bread with ricotta cheese.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large pan over medium low heat. Add the butter. When it melts, swirl the pan to combine.

Dip the entire sandwich in a mixture of the beaten eggs and milk in a wide, shallow bowl or plate with high sides. Let the sandwich “soak” the egg mixture for about a minute, then flip the sandwich over to coat the other side with egg.

Cook the sandwiches slowly in a skillet or on a griddle on one side until egg is golden brown and set, about five minutes. Turn and cook the other side. Our bread was thick, so we also turned the sandwich on each of its four sides to cook any egg that was on the sides.

Remove the grilled sandwich from the pan. Cut into halves. Drizzle with maple syrup, dust with powdered sugar, and add fresh raspberries.
