This sweet and savory French Toast Sandwich is the ultimate breakfast
- A Large Pan or Skillet: Depending on how large your skillet is you may need to cook the french toast in multiple patches. My pan was a 12-inch and I could cook four slices of french toast at a time.
- Several Prep Bowls
- A Spatula and Whisk
- Measuring Cups and Spoons
- Thick Sandwich Bread: My favorite bread to use for this french toast sandwich recipe is white sandwich bread, Texas Toast or brioche slices. I like the way all of these toast and they hold up well for the sandwiches. I would stay away from any whole grain or oat bread.
- Powdered Sugar, Cinnamon and Salt
- Air Fryer Bacon: I love making my bacon in my Ninja Foodi. The bacon get super crispy and makes clean up easier. An added bonus is that I can cook the bacon while I am making the french toast and eggs on the stove top, therefore saving some prep time.
- Cream Cheese and Mascarpone: Mascarpone cheese is a must for this recipe. The cheese makes the eggs so creamy and the flavor compliments the bacon and blackberries perfectly,
- Jam: I have used several different flavors of jam for my stuffed french toast, but my favorite is blackberry. You can use your favorite store-bought brand or trying use my homemade 5-minute jam recipe.
- Fresh Fruit and Maple Syrup (For Serving)
How To Make French Toast Sandwiches
- Prepping the French Toast
Begin by making your french toast. In a shallow large bowl, combine powdered sugar cornstarch and cinnamon and whisk to combine. Add three eggs, milk, vanilla extract and whisk until well combined. Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture one at a time then add to a large skillet. Depending on the size of your skillet you may need to cook the french toast in several batches.
- Cooking the French Toast
Cook the french toast over low-medium heat for 3-5 minutes until golden and crispy. Flip and cook on the other side for an additional 3-5 minutes. Once the french toast is complete remove from the skillet and place on a large plate.
- Scrambled Eggs
While the french toast is cooking, add remaining eggs, milk and sea salt to a prep bowl and whisk to combine. Add the eggs to a separate pan and scramble to your liking. Once the eggs are nearly cooked top with mascarpone cheese dollops and stir until cheese is melted. Check out below for how I make my dad's special mascarpone scrambled eggs. This method is not required, but the perfect addition to the sandwich.
If frying bacon go ahead and add that to a separate pan, use leftover cooked bacon, or use my crispy air fryer bacon method.
- Assembling the Sandwich
Once all the ingredients are cooked it is time to assemble the stuffed french toast. Spread one slice of french toast with cream cheese, the other with blackberry jam then top with cooked bacon and scrambled eggs. Repeat until all the sandwiches are filled with cream cheese, jam, eggs, and bacon. Press the two sides together to create a sandwich. cut the sandwich in half and top with maple syrup, powdered sugar and fresh blackberries and serve warm.
The Best Scrambled Eggs: Thanks to my dad, I am now obsessed with mascarpone scrambled eggs. The key to these scrambled eggs is cooking them low and slow. I swirl them and get the liquid in between the cooked pieces like and omelette. Once the eggs are nearly done I add the mascarpone cheese, let it melt then turn the heat way up. I finish cooking the eggs until the outside is crisp then remove them from the pan. The result is so creamy, yet crispy on the outside. This is the way my dad taught me how to make eggs and they are so yummy!
Time Saver Tips: If you are short on time and looking to save some time, you can prep some of the ingredients ahead of time. You can make the bacon and french toast the day before and store in the fridge. Once you are ready to assemble the stuffed french toast re-heat the french toast in a toaster, the bacon in the microwave, cook the eggs and assemble.
Multi-Pan Vs. One Pan: Personally, I love to use two pans for this recipe. One for the french toast then a separate one for my eggs. This allows me to prep multiple things at one and save time. Alternatively, you can use one pan and cook each ingredient one after the other.
Honestly, there is never any leftovers because the sandwich is that good. If there is any leftover, store stuffed french toast in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
To re-heat the french toast sandwiches, I prefer to wrap in foil and heat in the over for 10-15 minutes at 300 degrees or until warm. Alternatively, you can heat in the microwave for 30-60 seconds until warm. The oven method takes longer, but is worth it IMO.
