"Stuffed" Cottage French Toast

Hi friends!! I just wanted to send out a HUGE THANK YOU for all the supportive and loving comments!  I'm truly so blessed for everyone that I SEE in my life, as well as you guys!  I can't wait to continue this journey sharing every detail I can, and I'm excited to get to know you better as well!  :D I also would like to share with you a recipe packed with protein-punch.  So without further ado...

"Stuffed" Cottage French Toast

Ingredients:

2 bread slices (I used Ezekiel sesame)

2 TBSP cottage cheese

1 TBSP chopped almonds

A few thin slices of pear

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 C almond milk

1/2 tsp cinnamon! (Or more :P)

Directions:

First, preheat the oven to 425 F (I used toaster oven) and grab a medium bowl.  Whisk together all the wet ingredients+cinnamon until well incorporated.  On a separate platter, lay down the bread slices and on one side, spoon on the cottage cheese, the almond pieces, and the pear slices.  Cover it with the other piece of bread.  Note that it will not stick together too well and thus, the title "stuffed" because it's a simulation. :P

Then, hold the "stuffed" breads carefully and drench it in the liquid mixture.  PAM a baking pan/dish and bake the toast for approximately 8 minutes.

And voila!  You have a cottage cheese French Toast...Froast?  Cottage cheese Froast...? :)

This recipe serves 1.

And then drench away....

Ta-daaaaa!

Although, I did make it for my sis in the end, so I just started adding on more liquid ingredients and bread slices and ended with a serving for 2!!

Tips:

  • The pear taste isn't too noticeable, so next time I'll actually sprinkle some cinnamon on the pears as well.
  • I would like to try it with a bread loaf instead!  And just make a slit in the middle so it's really STUFFED.
  • I used the toaster oven, so I'd recommend upping the temp to 450 F is you're using a regular oven.  :)

The top is crispy and crusty, just the way I like it Mmmmm!

I topped the Froast with....none other than PEANUT BUTTER!! Don't get me wrong, I love all kinds of nut butters!  But sometimes PB is the way to go.  This is one of my fave brands, next to Justin's Butter and a few others.

Once Again's Sunflower Butter is what first got me into their products!  They're so fresh, slightly sweet, and creamy.  Not like JIF, but like recently homemade butter. :D  I would really love to try NUTTZO BUTTER!!! But I have to admit, it's very pricey and I don't feel right buying one...as of now?  So I think I'll try to make it on my own, except I'm not sure how it really tastes hah!

My Question: What's the best French Toast you've ever tried?  What's your favorite brand of nut butter?  Also, what's the very 1st thing that catches your attention about a man? :P

Hope you have a blessed rest of the day!!

Love,
