Recipe Finds: Killer French toaste recipe

Guy Fieri was a winner of the Food Network Star competition. He is quite good on all levels. He is entertaining, he always wears shorts, has a red car, has great recipes and runs a restaurant and is always on the Food Channel. Did I mention the funky hairdo, goatee beard?
I love French Toast and this is a killer one to try which I will after I get back from China! A lot of people can't find it so I am posting it here and now and if you make it before I do, post a comment.

He also has a new blog that I found out about.

Guy Fieri's Stuffed French Toast
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.
