Stuffed French Toast

A couple years ago we were a part of a “brunch club,” which meant that one of six of us would pick a different place for Sunday brunch. There were no initiation ceremonies where you had to prepare 32 ounces of fresh squeezed orange juice in 5 minutes flat or run around the block balancing 10 flap jacks on a spatula without them toppling over. It just happened- three out for brunch just turned into six, and that’s how it started. The restaurant selections ran the gamut of fine dining, hip & trendy, perhaps granolaish, to the good old greasy spoon that we all crave on ocassion. It was a great way for us to be able to experience a lot of unique places without having to fork out the money for a dinner meal. Our friend Jon was (and could still be) notorious for ordering french toast. Like a mission, he was searching for the best french toast in the city. It should be known that the Brunch Club has been on sabbatical for some months due to home remodeling, holidays, and life, but that hasn’t stopped us from enjoying breakfast at home. And, we believe that we’ve come up with a french toast recipe that could be a contender by JDK standards. With a few simple ingredients that you probably already have at home, you too could create a scrumptious brunch for a few of your close friends

    I got so hungry for this I made it last night when it was rainy and cold—didn’t have anything on hand to stuff it wth except peanut butter and strawberry jam. Not good—was way too sweet but still like the idea—will try again with something else.

      I know he used to be a big fan of the You Say Tomato and Blue Bird french toast- that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
