Indulge in a good ‘ol classic PBJ….for breakfast! This fun french toast is stuffed full of gooey peanut butter and jelly, and drenched in tons of maple syrup. Guaranteed to become your most-requested weekend breakfast!
This could quite possibly be the best french toast I’ve ever had in my life.
Stuffed french toast is my latest obsession. Before I made this french toast I had NEVER had stuffed FT in my life.
I’m gonna go cry a river now, because that’s just sad.
I’ve been missing out on SO. MUCH. AWESOME-NESS.
But I’m more than making up for it, by delivering you a SUPA’-fun, totally kid-like version of stuffed french toast.
PBJ french toast. Also known as the most epic french toast on the planet.
I’m about to lay a big secret on you guys: One that I’m kind of embarrassed and ashamed to admit.
Okay, here we go. — When I was a kid, I hated PBJ sandwiches. Flat-out HATED them. Whenever my mom would make PBJ’s for lunch, I would throw a fit pretty much every time.
I mean, have you ever heard of a kid that didn’t like good ‘ol PBJ’s?? I don’t know what the heck was wrong with me, but I musta grew out of it, because I have absolutely no problem with PBJ’s now.
Actually, when I was a kid I was pretty much the pickiest eater in my entire family. — My list of yucky-foods was literally probably a mile long. Kinda weird, but I grew out of most of that picky-ness and today I will eat pretty much anything.
Except seafood. *shudder*. Don’t ask why, cause it’s a long-ish story.
‘Kay. Confession time over. Back to french toast.
I’m kind of obsessed here, guys. This french toast is one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time. Since these muffins, anyway. 😉
I guarantee any kid will go crazy over this french toast. Unless your kids are insane like I was and don’t like PBJ’s, but I’m prettyyyy sure that was just me.
This french toast is basically just peanut butter and jelly stuffed between two slices of bread, dipped in a beaten-egg mixture, and then cooked to golden french toast perfection.
It comes together SO fast and before you know it, you’ve got a gorgeous stack of french toast ready to be faceplanted into.
While it cooks, the peanut butter and jelly kind of oozes out and get all melt-y and gooey. My kinda heaven, right there.
DO enjoy this french toast, hot off the skillet with tons of maple syrup, while the peanut butter and jelly filling is still all warm and gooey. It’s the best thing ever.
I usually end up going overboard with the toppings and smother this french toast in extra peanut butter, jelly, AND maple syrup. Also sometimes some sliced-up bananas. Ya’ know, just to make it semi-healthy.
This french toast is pretty much the ultimate weekend breakfast. Or lunch, or dinner, and possibly even a midnight snackeroo’. It whips up so fast you can make it whenever ya fancy it! 😉
I already ate my breakfast this morning, but I don’t care. — I want SOO badly to dive into a huge stack of this french toast like right now.
It’s practically the weekend so I think 2nd breakfasts are totally appropriate. Who’s with me? 😉
