"Kids and adults alike gobble this one up. It claims 12 servings, but everyone almost always has more than one serving. It's kind of like bread pudding, but even better (which I wouldn't have thought possible). Just mix up the night before, then pop in the oven when you wake up for a warm, decadent breakfast treat. Unfortunately, "bread" is not an option as a main ingredient, so who knows if this will come up in searches ever using only dairy ingredients for categories."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Spray a glass 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray; lay bread slices in bottom of casserole, trimming and fitting in pieces to completely cover.

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together milk, 1 1/2 cups egg substitute, half-and-half, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; pour half of milk mixture over bread in pan.

Step 3

In a blender or food processor, blend 1/2 cup egg substitute, 1/2 cup sugar, cream cheese, vanilla, nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon until smooth.

Step 4

Spread cream cheese mixture over bread, completely covering.

Step 5

Top with more bread slices, again trimming and piecing to fill to edges.

Step 6

Whisk remaining milk mixture again and pour over top (be careful, this will almost fill your pan).

Step 7

Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours (be very careful when moving this, as the liquid will not yet have absorbed and it's easy to spill).

Step 8

Preheat oven to 350F; remove cover from pan.

Step 9

Bake at 350F for 35 minutes (it will still be jiggly when moved); let stand 10-15 minutes.

Step 10

Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon and sprinkle over top before serving.

Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe.

  • If you can't find neufchatel cheese, you can use cream cheese instead.
  • For a sweeter French toast, use a sweeter bread like challah or brioche.

  • Substitute almond milk for 2% milk: Almond milk is a great dairy-free alternative to regular milk. It is also lower in fat and calories than regular milk, making it a healthier option for those who are trying to watch their weight or cholesterol levels.
  • Substitute coconut sugar for granulated sugar: Coconut sugar is a great natural alternative to regular sugar. It has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar, which means it won't cause your blood sugar levels to spike as quickly, making it a healthier option for those with diabetes or who are trying to manage their blood sugar levels.

Apple Cinnamon Stuffed French Toast Replace the raisin bread with apple cinnamon bread and add 1 cup of diced apples to the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon sugar before serving.

Fresh Fruit Salad - This light and refreshing dish is the perfect accompaniment to the decadent Stuffed French Toast. The sweet and tart flavors of the fruit provide a nice contrast to the rich cinnamon-raisin bread and creamy filling.

Maple-Glazed Bacon - This sweet and salty side dish is the perfect complement to the Stuffed French Toast. The smoky bacon and sweet maple syrup flavors add an extra layer of flavor to the dish, making it a great addition to the meal.


Q: How long should I refrigerate the stuffed French toast?

A: At least 8 hours. This will give the liquid time to absorb into the bread.

Q: Can I use any type of bread for stuffed French toast?

A: Yes, you can use any type of bread you like. However, it is best to use a thicker, denser bread such as challah or brioche. This will help the bread hold up better during the soaking process.
