ISO Stuffed French Toast Technique

What is the technique for making stuffed french toast. Is this a baked item, or can it be made on the stove top? I have never seen the item and so don't know how it's made. I would like to try making it for my wife, daughter and self.

I don't necesarilly need fillings as I can come up with my own. But I certainly won't reject themn either. And if the technique explanation would be made easier by telling how a filling is stuffed into the product, then by all means, thow it at me.

Thanks in advance for the replies.

I've never made it. GW. Someone here has, no doubt.

Cut bread into 1-1/2 inch thick slices. On the bottom edge of each piece, slice a pocket, leaving a 1/2 inch border on 3 sides. Fill the pockets with whatever you want to stuff it with.

Here is a Google search for recipes - and here are some from the Bed & Breakfast Inns site ... just scroll down to the stuffed french toast recipes.

I use french bread, cut thick, Make a pocket in the bread, There are lots of choices for the stuffing, I use cream cheese and fresh or canned peaches diced mixed with some of the peach juice, stuff the bread, try the best you can to fold the top piece of the bread over the stuffing I make it the way you make french toast stove top style. I will try to find my recipe for oven style stuffed I have never tried it, It does look good.

Use what is called 'texas toast'. It's brioche bread that is sliced one inch thick. Brioche is nice and firm, making it manageble to cut a small slit into one of the crusts. Make a pocket in the bread, stuff it, then dip into your egg mixture. It helps if the bread is slightly frozen. Also, make sure you have plenty of eggs in your egg mixture.

Yum, this looks good. I'd probably mix some choc chips in with the cream cheese.
