I was inspired by the Stuffed French Toast episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay.

  • Difficulty: Medium

Ingredients (10)

  • 8 slices brioche bread
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chocolate ganache
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Spread 2 tbsp of the chocolate ganache on a slice of bread. Top with a second slice. Repeat the process for the remaining pieces of bread.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  3. Whisk together the eggs, cream, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and salt in a large baking pan. Place the “sandwiches” in the baking pan, and turn to coat evenly. Let bread sit in the mixture for at least 5 minutes.
  4. Heat 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat until butter is melted. Add 2 sandwiches to the pan and cook until golden brown (about 2 minutes). Turn sandwiches over and cook additional 2 minutes. Transfer sandwiches to a baking sheet. Wipe the pan out with paper towels. Repeat the process with the remaining 2 tbsp butter, oil, and 2 sandwiches
  5. Bake the sandwiches in the oven for 6 minutes.
  6. Serve the French toast with maple syrup or creme anglaise.
