Stuffed French Toast

Stuffed French Toast

I love french toast and I have yet to find a place in London that serves it better than I can make it myself. I stopped ordering it for brunch because it’s always disappointing.

My secret to a good french toast is to use a nice brioche. It’s soft and buttery so it’s perfect.

Ocado are now selling a range of products from the french grocery store Carrefour. They sent me this loaf of Reflects de France Gache Brioche Loaf which retails for £2.99 a loaf. It’s made with flour, eggs, butter, sugar and creme fraiche.

This loaf is good for stuffed french toast as you can slice it yourself and make the incision for the filling. I often buy the Waitrose brioche loaf for regular french toast which is already conveniently sliced and only costs £1.79.
I buy my groceries from Ocado anyway as we don’t have a car so it’s convenient for stocking up on the heavy stuff like flour and sugar that I hate carrying home.

I’m already thinking of making a french toast stuffed with chocolate! I only made 2 slices to have for myself so I didn’t strictly follow a recipe. I saw the idea for stuffed French Toast on The Girl Who Ate Everything.

    @kerry – you have to try french toast! It's so easy, which is why I don't understand how the places in London screw it up!

    If you want to make it really quickly just dip regular bread in a mixture with a beaten egg and a few drops of milk.

  10. Sweet stuffed french toast- this is something I definitely need to try. They do a fantastic savoury version at Foxcroft and Ginger in Soho- with thick cut ham and a honey mustard dressing. It's my ultimate hangover cure.
