Cinnamon Raisin Stuffed French Toast

In our home like many homes in the world breakfast is the most important meal to us. You can find me cooking up a storm on the weekends making a breakfast feast fit for a king! I don’t make French Toast too often only because it’s my husbands least favorite breakfast dish. I never make stuffed french toast and only order it when we are out at restaurants.  So this was a major treat for us — well me. I used my OXO Good Grips Egg Beater to not only whip of the cream cheese filling but also the egg mixture. Don’t be scared to make such a luxurious breakfast treat! The key is to not over soak the cinnamon raisin bread, and to over stuff your french toast… which is ok, since that is what I did since I LOVE the filling so much!
