Stuffed French toast

Stuffed French toast makes a great breakfast or brunch, but it's so filling that it also works as a cozy "breakfast for dinner" dish. A mug of hot chocolate on the side is optional but totally recommended.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 12 min
  • Ready Time : 27 min


9 french toast sandwiches


  • 1 large loaf challah, cut in half-inch slices*
  • Sandwich fillings (I used cream cheese, date spread, and peanut butter)
  • 8 eggs
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter


1. Place an oven rack in the upper third of your oven. Preheat it to 400 F/200 C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. Make the sliced challah into sandwiches, spreading the filling(s) of your choosing on both sides of each sandwich.
3. In a 9×13 dish, mix eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Soak each side of the sandwiches in this mixture for 2 minutes.
4. Melt 2 Tbsp butter in a nonstick skillet and cook the sandwiches for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. This step is just for color, so as soon as they’re a pretty brown, take them out. Add the remaining butter to the skillet between batches as needed.
5. Transfer the browned sandwiches to the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 6 minutes per side and serve hot as is, sprinkled with powdered sugar, or with extra butter on top.
*Challah that is slightly stale or that’s been frozen and defrosted is perfect for French toast.

  1. Where do I find date spread? Sounds delicious but I need a brand name. Thanks!

    • In Israel, just ask for “memrach t’marim” in any grocery store. (I don’t know about the U.S. and elsewhere, sorry!)

    • You should be able to find it in a kosher market especially one that sells a lot of Israeli products. Otherwise you will have to make your own and Tali will be sharing a recipe soon on her blog.

      • Thanks, Tamar, it’s actually already up there. Search for “date coconut pinwheels” — the date spread is part of that recipe.

    Thanks, I might make this for my “welcome home” – from the hospital meal, for my relative!

  3. Silan is date spread. Kosher and sold by gourmet glatt and several others in bp
