Guy Fieri's Stuffed French Toast

*For the Bananas Foster French Toast recipe from Surrey's Cafe as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, click here*

I received a lot of email requests to find the Stuffed French Toast recipe from Guy's Big Bite. The episode aired on June 21, 2009. The recipe is hard to find because it isn't labeled as french toast - it's called Fieri - 4. Since we're nigh on the Fourth of July holiday, consider adding blueberries! And you'll have a festive and patriotic-looking brunch.

I recall seeing on a Food Network holiday special that this is one of Hunter's (Guy's son) favorite breakfasts.

Guy Fieri's Stuffed French Toast
(a.k.a. Fieri - 4)


1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs, beaten
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
8 (2-inch) thick slices bread
2 bananas, very thinly sliced
1 cup strawberries, very thinly sliced
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Maple syrup


Combine milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla in a shallow bowl. Set aside.
For assembly, spread a thin layer of the cream cheese onto 1 side of the bread slices. Top half the slices with the fruit. Place another piece of bread on top, cream cheese side down, creating a sandwich.
Preheat a griddle to 350 degrees F. Lightly brush with the butter.
Give the milk mixture a quick stir, and dip the sandwiches into the batter, coating all sides.
Place on the griddle. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, then turn on the edges and cook to brown evenly.
To serve, slice sandwiches in half on the diagonal and transfer to a serving platter. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.

Total Cook Time - 9 min
Level - Easy
Yield - 4 servings

Doesn't it drive you bonkers trying to find some of the recipes on FN's site?

Their indexing needs serious help!

This looks tasty :)

Mise En Place, it does indeed drive me bonkers! One must really know the ins-and-outs of the FN site to find what one wants. I get more information from the shows' index pages than I do by using the site's recipe search box.

And as for this stuffed french toast, imagine how decadent it would be using a nice, rich brioche for the bread, hmmm? :)
