Raspberry Brioche Stuffed French Toast

So, Mom's got a sweet tooth, huh? Then this stuffed French Toast, made with the Co-op Bakery's own Brioche, and a mixture of cream cheese and raspberries should garner approval. Brioche is a rich bread known for its high egg and butter content—making it ideal for French Toast... and regular toast... and eating straight out of the oven... and the bag when you get it home. You get the picture. Brioche rocks. 

This recipe is easy to whip up, so you can enjoy even more time with Mom. It's what she would want. 

12 slices of Co-op Brioche or Challah
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ cup frozen raspberries
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 eggs
½ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Maple syrup for serving
Butter for greasing the skillet

In a medium sized bowl stir together cream cheese, raspberries, and one tablespoon maple syrup.

In another shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla.

Spread cream cheese evenly on 6 pieces of bread. Place remaining bread slices on top of cream cheese.

In a skillet or on a griddle over medium heat, melt the butter.

Dip sandwiches in egg mixture, coating both sides. Place on griddle and let cook on each side for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve with warm maple syrup.
