RE: French Toast Thu, 03/23/06 2:41 PM (permalink)
When y'all stuff french toast, do you split a thick piece of toast and make a pocket? Or put the filling in between two slices? And I've heard of french toast soak overnight and baked in the over, anyone know about this?
Thanks
Cathy

        here's one for you...best if the bread is a bit on the stale side

        French Toast
        12 slices of thick bread (Texas Toast)
        2 8-oz pkgs of cream cheese
        1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
        10 eggs
        1/3 cup maple syrup
        2 cups milk

        Blueberry Sauce
        1 cup water
        1 cup sugar
        2 Tbsps corn starch
        2 cups fresh or frozen wild Maine blueberries
        (added to the recipe one cup at a time--see instructions)
        1 Tbsp butter

        Remove the crusts from the bread and cube. Spray the bottom of a 9"x13" glass baking dish with vegetable spray and place half the cubes of bread in the pan. Cube the cream cheese and put on top of the bread. Distribute one cup of fresh or frozen blueberries over the cream cheese. Place remaining bread over the blueberries.

        Beat the eggs, add the maple syrup and the milk. Pour mixture over bread and cheese. Place plastic wrap over dish and refrigerate overnight.

        Bake the French toast, covered with foil, in the middle of a preheated 350° F oven for 30 minutes, remove the foil, and bake the French toast for 30 minutes more, or until it is puffed and golden.

        While the French toast is baking, make the blueberry sauce:

        Cook the water, cornstarch, sugar, and 1-cup blueberries until it thickens.
        Then, add one more cup of blueberries and the butter.
        Pour over individual pieces, slice and twist a lemon slice over the top for garnish, and serve.
        (Note, it is best if you let the Blueberry Stuffed French Toast sit for about 10 minutes before slicing). You can substitute raspberries for the blueberries or use a combination of both.

        Serve the French toast topped with the warm blueberry sauce.

            The best french toast that I've tasted is at Jane Restaurant in NYC. They make it with brioche bread (similar to challah) and a creme brulee egg batter -- mmmm delicious.

              I believe she used crushed Corn Flakes to give the french toast a crunchy exterior.

                At home.

                My 14 yo daughter's french toast is the best.

                She's got a secret way of seasoning and ... well... it's just the best.

                  I caught Rachel Ray doing her $40/Day shtick from Hilton Head Island. The breakfast restaurant featured a "french toast" that was dried, dense french bread, egg-soaked, layered into a baking dish covered with blackberries, topped with another layer of egg-soaked bread and baked. I've made it three times for guests at breakfast and it has been a "home-run" every time! The recipe is available on the food network website...look under $40/day - Hilton Head Island. Enjoy!

                      I've tried that same recipe except I used blueberries. From the complete quiet at the breakfast table I'd say it was a hit!

                        I love the FT at Harvest Moon Cafe here in Ann Arbor, MI. They use a little Grand Marnier in the batter to give a hint of orange flavor and the bread is home made. YUM with a slice of Deerfield Ham on the side!

                        I make an Apple FT recipe that is on the back of the Stouffer's (R) scalloped apple box. It is so good, and can be made the night before and baked in the morning if you are having a group over for breakfast or brunch and want to socialize rather than cook in the morning. (Also makes the house smell wonderful!)

                            My favorite French toast if from the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek, WI. They serve Door County cherry stuffed French Toast: two golden brown slices of egg bread, filled with pockets of Wisconsin cream cheese and Door County cherries, with real maple syryp. www.whitegullinn.com They have one of the best "fish boils" in Door County.

                                Paul, phone in a reservation for that fish boil immediately. They usually have two or three a night and they book up quickly, especially on the weekends. Are you going to the luncheon on Friday in Milwaukee with the Sterns?

                                  I was not invited and I knew nothing about the Sterns being in Milwaukee on Friday. I will be in Milwaukee on Thursday night at the Residence Inn downtown.

                                  I was not sure if I would need a reservation this early in the season for the Fish Boil at the White Gull. I read about their process and I know it is very popular but it seems that it needs more than boiled fish and potatoes? I am going to do it but it seems a bit pricey for just fish and potatoes with some salt. Perhaps you can expound on that.

                                  There seems to be a lot of neat places in Door County. I will also overnight in Green Bay. Any thoughts about that region?

                                    Paul, the fish boil at the White Gull Inn has always been pricey. It includes dinner and dessert. I haven't been to one in a while. They used to offer seconds. This may not be true today. It's important to arrive early to watch the actual fish boil. Bring your camera! I'm not familiar with any Green Bay restaurants. North of Green Bay in Sturgeon Bay is a great little 50's diner called Perry's Cherry Diner. www.perryscherrydiner.com Greasy cheeseburgers, fries, and thick chocolate malts. I'll give you a call at the hotel tonight. The Sterns are having a book signing and lunch on Friday in Milwaukee sponsored by the Harry Schwartz Book store. The luncheon will be at:

                                    Bacchus Restaurant
                                    925 E. Wells
                                    Milwaukee, WI
                                    For information call: (414)765-1166
                                    Cost: $68.95 which includes a 3 course meal and a copy of their new book

                                    Take Care.

                                      French toast made with French Bread !!!!A-ha, what a novel idea. And I make it with 2nd day bread at that. When my brother saw what I was cooking he was amazed because we had grown up using just plain old white bread. He is a convert now !!!

                                      If you want to become an expert on French Toast just travel the Bed and Breakfast circuit. When I did it was the breakfast served in about 90% of the B&B's. Some of it was excellent and some not so good, but in all cases it was cheap. But traveling the back roads of upstate NY and New England where there were no motels or hotels I was damn glad to find a good B&B. Here's a toast to French Toast and good coffee to start the day.

                                        CSD: I will definately do breakfast at the White Gull. French toast there sounds really good. I probably will do the fish boil just for the experience. I hope it is as good as the price.

                                        I guess it is getting to be spring time in Door county and I am sure I will find something to do in between meals.

                                        I think I have reservations at the Residence Inn downtown Milwaukee tonight. I probably will not get there before 8:00PM. Any good sausage or hot dog places within walking distance of the Marriott facility?

                                          a few questions........................ what the hell is a "fish boil" ?
                                          please don't tell me one would forgo the traditional Wisconsin fish-fry and actually boil and eat a Walleye ...... ???

                                          also , Paul what's a southern boy like you doing north of the Mason Dixon Line?? I hope you'll realize that when you leave Dixie you'll be more then 100 yards away from some decent BBQ......

                                            Paul,

                                            The fish boil meal at the White Gull Inn is not worth the money.........the experience is however. It is quite a production. Think dinner theatre.

                                            To answer fpcyz, no it it not walleye it is normally white fish.

                                              The humidity here is so bad that bread will often mold before getting stale, so I slice the french bread and place in a low low oven for a couple hours before soaking in egg/milk mixture. For a truely fantastic taste, try cooking on a charcoal grill...MMMmmMMm

                                                Paul, your hotel is located at 648 N. Plankinton. If you walk 1/2 block north and 1/4 block west, you'll experience my favorite Thai restaurant, The King & I(823 N. 2nd St.) 1.5 blocks north on Plankinton is Butch's Clock Steak House and Martini Bar. Butch's Steak House, his 2nd restaurant is a short walk west. I've never been to the Steak House & Martini Bar, but have enjoyed his steaks at Butch's Steak House. If they both serve the same food, try the one on Plankinton.

                                                        There is a small breakfast/lunch eatery in Klamath Falls, OR that makes fantastc stuffed french toast with seasonal fruit stuffing. It's called Nibbley's and located at 2650 Washburn Way. They are open 7am- 2 pm M-S and open a little later and serve breakfast only on Sundays.
