One day, my kids will learn to sleep in, right?
Things are certainly better now that our oldest is 6 and can figure out the TV and pour herself some milk for cereal. So, there have been a few times, recently, when they both will head downstairs to make bowls of cereal and watch TV.
Then my husband and I can sleep in for an extra 15-20 minutes on the weekends. Bliss!
Blueberry Lemon Stuffed French Toast
When we do big weekend breakfasts we love to make french toast.
It’s a family favorite. Plus, we can easily jazz it up by adding in some lemon zest or serving with a fruit infused syrup and vanilla bean whipped cream. It feels like the possibilities are endless.
Personally, my favorite way to enjoy french toast is to stuff it. And, a cream cheese based filling it my favorite. It sorta reminds me of a cheesecake filling, especially when I add fruit in.
This Blueberry Lemon Stuffed French Toast has lemon zest and a bit of lemon juice. And of course, fresh blueberries. Slather that berry & cream cheese mixture onto a slice of bread, top with another to create a sandwich. Dip into beaten eggs. Cook on a buttered skillet. Super Simple but super delicious!

I used the Sara Lee® Honey Wheat because it has a great sweetness that will be highlighted as a french toast. Plus, it has no high fructose corn syrup, just a touch of honey. Perfect!
I suggest serving the french toast with a pat of butter, some warm maple syrup, and some extra blueberries. You’ll love to cut a piece of the french toast revealing the filling, before swirling your piece into the syrup on you plate. Then your first bite… oh joy!!
Enjoy this luscious Blueberry Lemon Stuffed French Toast with your family this weekend. It’s so scrumptious.
