Peanut Butter-Chocolate Stuffed French Toast with Jam Syrup

 

What's better than French toast?

Peanut-butter-and- jelly-stuffed French toast, of course! Pass the maple syrup for a deliciously satisfying way to give your family a great start to their day.

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 8 slices bread
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 2/3 cup grape jam or jelly
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Whipped cream, for serving

Directions:

  1. Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter on each bread slice. Divide the chocolate chips among 4 slices; top with the remaining bread slices, peanut butter side down, to make 4 sandwiches.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt. Soak each sandwich in the egg mixture until saturated, about 5 seconds. Transfer the sandwiches to a large platter in a single layer.
  3. In a small saucepan, cook the jam and 3 tablespoons water over low heat, stirring occasionally, until warm and smooth.
  4. In a large skillet, melt 1/2 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Add half of the sandwiches and cook until golden, about 2 minutes on each side. Repeat with the remaining butter and sandwiches. Slice and serve with the whipped cream and jam syrup.
