Breakfast for dinner is always the right choice. When I noticed I had half of a day old baguette sitting on my counter, I decided to make some French toast with French bread. I was feeling fancy so I decided to add some berry syrup and cream cheese. The result was a classier than usual breakfast dish.

Stacked French Toast

  • 1 day old baguette
  • 1/2 cup half & half
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • berry syrup
  • cream cheese
  1. Mix the half & half, eggs, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon and the salt in a pie pan. Slice the into slices that are a couple centimeters in width. Dip and flip the slices in the batter. Place into a skillet, which should be set at medium high. Let each side get golden brown.
  2. Stack 4 slices on a plate. Between each slice smear cream cheese and drizzle some berry syrup. Top with berries, cream cheese, berry syrup, and powdered sugar. 
A simple dish made fancy by using half & half instead of milk, adding cream cheese and berry syrup, and stacking the tiny discs of bready goodness.
