Fresh Ideas for Stuffed French Toast

Fall means many things to many people. For me, it means longer breakfasts lingering over the paper and drinking one more cup of coffee than usual. It means making heartier breakfasts that stick with you through the cooler mornings. It means stuffed french toast.

According to The Food Timeline, the way we approach french toast today hasn't changed much since it was created by medieval European chefs who didn't want to see the daily bread go to waste, so they figured out a way to liven it up with a little egg and a dash of milk. But of course anything that's been around that long has seen dozens of adaptations and changes and we'd like to think stuffed french toast is one of the highlights.

Now there are hundreds of recipes for stuffed french toast out there—many involving sweet, fruity fillings and heaping dollops of whipped cream. But we set out to find something a little different, something to get you excited about getting in the kitchen early on a Saturday morning. I dare say we may have succeeded in tracking down off-the-beaten-path stuffed french toast. Think savory, think marmalade, think pumpkin.
