maple & mascarpone stuffed french toast

Sometimes breakfast can be a bit boring, or even mundane, but this? There is nothing boring about this breakfast. Buying those maple crystals has turned into a very good decision. Especially when inspiration for a mascarpone-maple stuffed french toast stemmed from them.

In terms of breakfast, I’ll choose eggs over french toast, waffles, pancakes, etc. any day. But this french toast may just make me reconsider that. The creamy, sweet filling between whole grain bread left the taster saying, “more please!”

I certainly don’t make french toast on a regular basis, perhaps partly because I always freeze my bread so I never need to use up bread, but I’ll be finding excuses to make this again. Buying too much fresh bread can never be a bad thing, can it now?

Make these for a special, lazy breakfast, for company or mini versions for bridal and baby showers – they are sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Maple & Mascarpone-Stuffed French Toast

  • 2 whole eggs, whisked
  • 2 oz mascarpone cheese
  • 1 Tbsp maple granules
  • Day old whole grain baguette, thinly sliced (about 10 slices)
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • maple syrup

Heat large pan over medium heat. Mix the mascarpone and maple granules together. Spread about 1/2 Tbsp of the mascarpone mixture on bread slice and top with other slice. Let soak in egg bath for about 2 minutes per side. Add 1 Tbsp butter to hot pan and place french toast pieces in pan. Cook for about 2 minutes per side. Serve with a dollop of mascarpone mixture and drizzle with maple syrup.

  1. Yeah, I could probably take care of this pretty easily! I am much more of an eggs or oatmeal person normally but I love long weekend mornings when I get to make stuff like this. It feels so decadent and awesome. Yum.

  2. UM WOW…this is a breakfast that is sure to get me up in the morning. I’ve heard so much about marscapone cheese, but I’ve never tried it. I need to buy some!

  6. Oh, I will take this please! I always choose the carbs (oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, and French toast) over eggs. This one is a no-brainer for sure!
