Stuffed French Toast with Brie Cheese and Berries

The Best Food-Spiration: Travel

My family loves to travel. We’ve been on some fun family vacations together. A few of my favorites places were: Myrtle Beach, Ponte Vedra, Washington D.C., California, my grandpa’s farm in Idaho, and of course, Europe. I loved spending time with my family, visiting tourist attractions, trying new foods, learning about new cultures, relaxing, and enjoying different scenery.

One of my favorite things about traveling is the resorts.  I know, I am a nerd:) I love checking in and exploring a new place. As a kid, I would hurry to our room to claim my bed, check out the view, and read the hotel guidebook.  My siblings and I would also run to find the ice machine, pool, and anything else the resort had to offer. We always had a good time, no matter where we were staying.

I used to tell my dad that I wanted to work at a resort when I grew up. I thought any job at a resort would be fun, from front desk to housekeeping. I changed my mind as I got older, but I still have the dream of owning a bed and breakfast. Maybe someday:)

Stuffed French Toast with Brie and Berries

Ingredients

  • 8 slices of bread-brioche white, or French
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 Tablespoons raspberry jam
  • Brie cheese sliced and rind removed, 4 slices per French toast "sandwich"

Toppings:

  • Mixed berries
  • Maple syrup
  • Powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. 1. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together. Pour mixture into a shallow bowl or pie plate.
  2. 2. Dip slices of bread into the egg mixture. Make sure you coat each side of the bread, allowing the egg mixture to soak in.
  3. 3. Heat a large skillet, using medium high heat. Spray well with cooking spray. Add the coated bread slices to the pan. Cook both sides until lightly golden brown. Cook all 8 pieces of French toast. Set French toast on a plate to cool for one minute.
  4. 4. Spread one piece of French toast with 1 tablespoon of raspberry jam. Top with brie slices. Use enough brie to cover the slice of French toast. Place a another slice of French toast on top. Place the French toast "sandwich" back in the pan and heat until cheese is melted. Flip once so both sides are heated. Cook the remaining slices of French toast the same way.
  5. 5. Serve hot with berries, syrup, and powdered sugar.

  1. wow, this looks so delicious. i have never tried brie with french toast but it looks like a winning combination. i think you are spot on — it would really compliment the sweetness of all the ingredients in the french toast and tartness of the berries

    i would stay at your b&b anytime!

    WONDERFUL RECIPE!

  2. This is great, me and my brother are planning a huge brunch for all the moms in our family on Sunday, and this WILL be on our table. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I would travel to your B&B for this wonderful breakfast. It looks and sounds so good! It’s great you have some special memories with your family at some fun resorts!

  4. Holy cow, Maria! Are you joking?? That looks incredible! I would pay to eat that any time, not just for breakfast! What a great combination.

  5. Stuffed french toast is my favorite brunch menu item of all time. There was a restaurant in NY that used to stuff it with gelato. Oh my.
    I never thought of adding brie but I kind of see it since it’s so creamy 🙂
    Hope you do get a B&B one day! I’d come to have a bite of this guy.

  6. So yummy! Sounds absolutely heavenly and sooo perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch.
    I think the idea of opening a B&B sounds wonderful. My mom has dreamed of opening a B&B for years now. Like you, she says maybe one day? If you ever decide on opening one let me know because I would be there in a heartbeat if you served this yummy french toast!

  7. Bread+cheese+fruit…how could you go wrong? Looks so delicious. You should totally open a B&B….I promise to book a stay if you do!!

  8. I don’t like french toast, but this dish is really tempting me for some reason. YUM!!

    I love going to resorts, too. I didn’t know it was nerdy to love resorts!! *scratches head* I still haven’t gone on a cruise. I would love to go to Greece and Italy via a luxury cruise ship. Does that make me an uber-nerd?

  9. Maria, I love this concept! Berries and Brie are a perfect paring! I would definitely visit your B&B – I KNOW the food would be amazing!

  10. I love french in the morning and even for dinner! This french toast looks absolutely delicious!

  11. This type of decadent breakfast definitely belongs at a hotel or bed & breakfast where guests are in vacation eating mode. Gotta love using the “but I’m on vacation!” excuse to eat whatever you want! 😉

  12. Hah, I have a dream of opening a B&B some day too. How great would that be?
    I would definitely visit your B&B if you served this french toast. It looks and sounds heavenly.

  13. I love stuffed french toast: it seems like such a professional and decadent treat…and yours looks great… perhaps i’ll try it!
    i totally share your dream of the bed and breakfast one day — that the inn in innbrooklyn 🙂 ………….

  14. French toast with Brie – I would be in heaven if my family served me this on Mother’s Day! I was the same way as a kid – as soon as we checked into the hotel, I had to check out the pool.

  15. I wonder if I could get my kids to make this for me for Mother’s Day or if I would end up going out of my mind wondering how they were doing and just dig in and do it myself….LOL It looks delicious!

  16. My siblings and I would do the same thing whenever we got to a resort. And the bed claiming (or even room claiming) got more and more difficult over time as there were more and more of us (I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters)! Always loved family vacations.

    I hope you do open a B&B someday. I will come visit it for sure! This recipe looks so good. I am so used to seeing stuffed French toast made with cream cheese. I’m really intrigued by the brie in this. I bet it’s delicious!

  17. I love Brioche, French Toast, Brie, Maple Syrup & Raspberry jam. What a great recipe, I’m definitely trying these French Toast this weekend!!!

  18. I’m laughing because I just made “egg in the hole” for my boys’ breakfast. Your recipe looks amazing … and when you open your B&B, I’ll definitely be a guest (just make sure you open it in one of my two favorite places: Napa or Nantucket)!!

  19. That looks fantastic! Soooo delicious, a real treat! One of my first cooking jobs was in a B&B in Venice Beach, CA. It’s a ton of work, but so much fun. When you open yours, I’ll be there!!

  20. Let me know when you open that B & B – I’ll come for sure! Especially if that French toast is on the menu. I think I’ll have to print out this recipe and casually leave it lying around. Hmm, maybe that’s too subtle. Perhaps better would be pinned to my husband’s pillow.

  21. I would definitely take a trip to your B&B for this! I have similar dreams of opening my own and serving up heavenly breakfasts like this!

  22. followed you here from Simple Bites b/c I had to take a peek at this recipe! Looks absolutely divine and I am off to print it now! I hope it will find its way to me on Mother’s Day 🙂

  23. I would be at the front of the line to stay at any B&B that you are running! This french toast looks AMAZING!! Maybe I will make it for myself for Mother’s Day!

  24. Seriously, it must be French Toast week – but no complaints from me! Love french toast and this recipe w/brie just knocks it out of the park – well done!

  25. Just let us know when you start accepting reservations. There is a weekend at your B&B and this French toast with my name on it! We go to a resort for one of our vacations each year and I do love it too.

    I just can’t believe this recipe! Brie on French toast? But now that I hear about it, it makes perfect sense. It sounds so good!

    1. You are all welcome at our Bed and Breakfast if we ever open one. Glad we will have a few guests at least:)

  26. I would LOVE to wake up to this French Toast on mother’s Day or any day for that matter. My favorite cheese is Brie and this is right up my alley. 🙂
    And I would definitely book a weekend at you B&B!

  27. I love arriving in a new place too. Even when I’m on a business trip to a new city I love to get out of my hotel room, check out what’s where, and sort of stake my claim to the neighborhood. For however long I’m there, I want to make the place my own. Same thing with resorts and hotels. I always want to know where to find the food, the gym, the pool, and the bar. Ever go on a cruise ship? Exploring that kind of thing after check in as almost too daunting a task, but I always feel I must do it. I need a feel of my new “home” for hte week.

    I dream of opening a B&B too. Every once in a while Kevin and I will look at places for sale. We have a copy of “Bed and Breakfasts for Dummies”. It’s a tough business right now as they’re not really in vogue anymore (condo rentals for families are the current vacation trend) but sometimes when the rat race gets to be too much, we find ourselves dreaming again.

    I love the idea of french toast with brie. Very over the top with richness, but so worth it. I’d definitely stay at a B&B just for that!

  28. OMG, I was always the same way growing up wanting to explore wherever we were staying. And now, I LOVE B&Bs and could see myself owning one but it is a lot of work though.

    Maybe I’ll just visit every B&B out there and experience the amazing breakfasts and calwfoot tubs in the middle of the rooms 🙂
