This easy recipe for Stuffed French Toast with Berries is a rich and decadent breakfast that's perfect for the holidays! Thick slices of bread are stuffed with cream cheese, soaked in a rich custard and then griddled until buttery and crisp. Serve with maple syrup and fresh berries for a very special breakfast or brunch.
Are you ready? Presents wrapped? Cookies baked? Mistletoe hung? I am nowhere near what I would consider to be "ready" for Christmas, but I know I'll somehow manage to get there in time. It's like this every year - a mad dash to the finish line. But that's all part of the excitement!
Christmas morning breakfast is major. Do you know what you'll be serving yet? Growing up, my mom always popped open a can of cinnamon rolls, which was everything a kid could want after an exhausting morning of opening up presents. This year, we'll be heading up to Grandma and Grandpa Graff's house for Christmas brunch. The Graff's do Christmas right - I consider them professionals, and I always look forward to spending the day at their home. But this year, I'm especially excited that we get to enjoy their famous Christmas brunch.
The Graff's put out the most amazing breakfast spread, and the past few years we've had to miss it. They have coffee, mimosas and bloody Maries, plus French toast, bacon, fresh fruit and - get this - eggs Benedict made to order with perfectly poached eggs and buttery homemade hollandaise. Jealous? You should be. A lot of work goes into that brunch and I'm so grateful that I get to just sit back and enjoy it. But an extra special Christmas breakfast doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming, and this stuffed French toast is proof.
Serve it up with pure maple syrup (warm it up first for best results) and some mixed fresh berries to make your Christmas morning extra special, extra delicious - and most importantly - extra easy.
