Stuffed French Toast

Stuffed French Toast

During a little BBQ competition between friends of mine I was introduced to this dish as a breakfast meal and it was some delicious and amazing. So I decided to share his recipe but he didn't want his name mentioned. This one is a little time consuming to make but totally worth it and so tasty in flavors :)

Stage 1 is to make the Kings Hawaiian Bread the day before:

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 3 cups All-Purpose Flour, 
  • 1 TBSP instant yeast 
  • 2 TBSP water 
  • ½ cup pineapple juice 
  • ¼ cup softened, unsalted butter 
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar 
  • 2 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk, white reserved 
  • 1 TSP vanilla extract 
  • 2 TBSP potato flour 
  • 1¼ TSP salt


Directions:

In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine ¼-cup flour, 1-tablespoon instant yeast and 3 tablespoons water to make the sponge.

Allow the sponge to rest for 15 minutes.

In a bowl mix the pineapple juice, butter, brown sugar, eggs and yolk, and vanilla till its well-blended



Whisk together the rest of the flour, potato flour, and salt before adding the liquid ingredients.





Mix and knead until the dough is cohesive and smooth, it may take a while because it will be really sticky at first. I used my Kitchen Aid Mixer with dough hook.



If it is still sticking like crazy, add a couple more tablespoons of flour

Grease a large loaf pan and let rise for 2 hours


Cover dough lightly with plastic wrap.

Mix the leftover egg white with 1-tablespoon cold water.

Brush the mixture on the dough.



Preheat your BBQ to 350° with heat deflector.

        Bake loaf of bread for 30-35 minutes or until golden.




    Stage 2 making the stuffed French Toast the night before:

    Ingredients :

    • 8 oz. Cream Cheese (cut into 16 to 48 pieces)
    • 8 Eggs
    • 12 oz. Half and Half
    • 2 oz. Maple Syrup
    • 6 TBSP. Butter (melted)
    • 1 loaf Hawaiian Bread 


    Directions:

    Cube bread (crust on). Layer one third in greased 9” x 13” glass pan. Dot with cream cheese pieces.



    Cover with remaining bread cubes. (I usually just mix my bread cubes and Cream Cheese in the pan but the choice is yours)

    Combine remaining ingredients and pour over bread.



    Cover with plastic wrap, pressing down lightly so bread soaks up egg mixture.
    Refrigerate overnight.




    Next morning Pre-heat your BBQ to 350 degrees with heat deflector & Pizza stone for baking


    6. Stabilize your BBQ to 350° 

    7. Place pan on spacers and bake 40 to 50 minutes 



    8. Rotate 180 degrees after 20 minutes or so.

    9. Allow to cool slightly, cut into serving size pieces and pour on Apple Cider Sauce from recipe bellow.

    Stage 2 making the Apple Cider Sauce:

    Ingredients:



    • 1 cup Sugar
    • 3 TBSP. Bisquick
    • 1 TSP. Cinnamon
    • 2 TBSP. Lemon Juice
    • 2 cups Apple Cider
    • 1/4 Cup or half us stick butter




    Direction:

    Mix sugar, Bisquick and cinnamon in 2-quart saucepan.
