Looking for a festive fall breakfast dish? Use up the homemade pumpkin cream cheese and pair it with pumpkin swirl bread to make the most divine Pumpkin Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast.
A few weeks ago, while doing my Monday mid-day grocery shopping I saw that swirl bread was buy-one-get-one-free. We love cinnamon raisin swirl bread so I always buy it when it goes on sale. As I reached for the two bags of cinnamon raisin swirl bread I spotted bags of pumpkin swirl bread. Say what!?!?! I had no idea they even made such a fabulous seasonal bread. So I did what any good wife would do and bought one cinnamon raisin and then one pumpkin swirl. After making homemade whipped pumpkin cream cheese and slathering it on said pumpkin swirl bread, I decided I would make french toast with the bread and then stuff it with the decadent homemade cream cheese.
That my friends is how this recipe for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast was created. I’ve stuffed french toast before. It’s kind of my thing. I can’t help it I love cream cheese and I enjoy french toast. You can find my other stuffed french toast recipes like Pineapple Stuffed French Toast with Coconut Syrup or my recipe for Cinnamon Raisin Banana Stuffed French Toast and Buttermilk French Toast Stuffed with Golden Plum Cream Cheese.
