Stuffed French Toast: September Recipe Party

I'm always skeptical of anything that's not regular old french toast.  I personally don't like things soggy, but I tried this and was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it.  I don't like pecans either, but it tasted so good on this French Toast.  Thanks Lexi!!!  The original recipe is from This was another winner!!

  • 12 slices of bread (I used whole wheat)
  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 6 Tbsp cinnamon sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • whipped cream (optional)
  1. Melt butter in microwave. Stir in brown sugar & maple syrup until smooth & creamy. Add pecans.
  2. Pour pecan sauce in bottom of 9x13 pan. Reserve 1/4 cup sauce
  3. Mix cream cheese & cinnamon sugar
  4. Spread cream cheese mixture on 6 slices of bread
  5. Top with another slice of bread
  6. Arrange "sandwiches" in 9x13 pan
  7. Pour remaining sauce on top of sandwiches. You might need to spread the sauce with a knife.
  8. Whip eggs & milk together.
  9. Pour over all bread.
  10. Bake 350, about 30-35 minutes
  11. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, if you like
***Lexi noted she would make more of the pecan mixture next time.
