Owning a bed and breakfast has always been a dream of mine. I would love to have people from all around the world sit down at our table and enjoy a delicious breakfast. We don’t have any plans to open a B&B anytime soon, so I will have to keep dreaming. I do like to pretend that when we have guests or make special breakfasts that our house is a little B&B. Hey, you are never too old to imagine:)
We recently made Peaches and Cream Stuffed French Toast for breakfast and I told Josh that someday this decadent French toast will be on our B&B menu. It is divine!
Harry and David sent us a box of beautiful Sweet Oregold Peaches that were the star of the Peaches and Cream Stuffed French Toast. Their peaches are amazing! We snacked on a few fresh peaches before making our French toast and the room was silent. They were so good we didn’t need to say anything. We just savored our juicy peaches.
Later on, we diced up some peaches for Caleb and he also enjoyed them, except he wasn’t quiet. He yelled and begged for more! I am glad his palate is already refined.
To make the French toast, we made a cream cheese filling that was sweetened with powdered sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. We spread the cream cheese filling on two slices of French bread and layered the peaches on top. We created a sandwich by adding another slice of bread. We dipped the sandwiches into an egg mixture and cooked the French toast until golden brown.
We served the stuffed French toast with diced peaches and pure maple syrup. The creamy filling and sweet peaches were a match made in heaven. I couldn’t of imagined a better French toast. Someday, when we have our B&B, I hope you will join us for Peaches and Cream Stuffed French Toast. Until then, please promise me you will make this French toast at home!
Visit Harry and David’s site so you can have fresh Sweet Oregold peaches delivered to your front door. You can also give your friends and family a sweet peach gift. And join me tomorrow at 2:00 MST for a special chat about peaches on Harry and David’s Facebook page. I can’t wait to talk peaches with all of you!

Harry and David provided us with the peaches for this post, but our opinions are our own.
