Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast
Peanut Butter is one of those ingredients that you either love or hate.
I’ve never met someone who’s ‘meh’ about peanut butter
While I was growing up, Peanut Butter was not an ingredient in anything other than cookies, sandwiches and occasionally, if you were wild and crazy… cheesecakes or brownies.
We are definitely living in a different world.
Peanut butter shows up in chinese food, desserts, pizzas, candies and pretty much any dish you can think of
My ingredient for this week’s HEB Meal Maker Challenge was Peter Pan Peanut Butter.
Last year I made some ridiculously delicious Peanut Butter, Honey, Apple and Bacon sandwiches that knocked our socks off.
This year, my kids are on a brekkie and brunch kick.
I firmly stand in the french toast as one of the best breakfasts ever camp, so I decided that Peanut Butter stuffed french toast needed to be made.
I was right.
I was so very, very right.
It was so very, very good.

This is one of my hubby’s favorite french toasts. I used to hate PB when I was young. But after trying a PB stuffed French Toast at an Asian cafe, I fell in love with PB. Looking at your pictures make me crave for some right now.
AWw Thank you, Amy! Was there any special twist on the PB Stuffed French Toast since it was at an Asian Cafe?
Not really a twist. But the French Toasts at the Asian Cafe are simple deep fried in peanut oil! I guess any thing taste better after deep dried! LOL….maybe that was why it got me hooked! 😉 Happy Friday.
Well, I certainly an not on the fence about pb. I love love it. And this french toast looks amazing!
LOL Shelly! You’re so cute 😉 Thank you!
i adore peanut butter in pretty much any and everything…probably the best flavor ever!
Hee Hee 😉 Like I said… you either LOVE it, or you don’t 😉
This has my mouth watering! Definitely going to try it!
Thank you, Heather! 🙂
Hey Beautiful! You really have to stop posting such amazing deliciousness. I’m spending way too much time on your site. Seriously! MMMMMM FOOOOOD. Gosh, I’m going to end up overweight 😉 jk
Ummm no 😉 LOL Carrian!
I could say the same about you!!! Your blog keeps me drooling! <3 you darlin'
Yumminess!! I wonder if my kids would like it…I def. know the hubs would!
I think it’s meant to be, especially since you’re CL post is Chocolate and Peanut Butter Nutella Truffles (which BTW.. ZOMG YUMMY)
The 14YO loves putting peanut butter AND syrup on her French toast. She’ll love this recipe!
YAY Em! You have to let me know what she thinks! I know what discerning palates your family has!
The color and texture looks delicious! I always love peanut butter but I will love it more with the way you prepare it!
All I have to say is, “What the WHAT?! Delicious!” Oh PB and french toast, I love you so!
What the What – makes me laugh out loud every single time I hear it our see it 😉 I always “hear” it in my head with a high end WHAT at the end 🙂 makes me giggle.
Um.. hello.. pecan waffles with bacon! You may be my new BFF
LOL! What the what?! does the same to me, Rachel! Yup, pecan waffles and bacon, what the what. Thanks so much for stoppin’ by my neck of the woods, Rachel — you’re welcome here anytime =)
Did almost this exact thing with Biscoff spread instead of peanut butter this weekend, and drizzled with a little honey. I do suggest making a little more of the custard batter, I cut mine with a little heavy cream instead of milk, so you can pour it onto the toast as it cooks, let it soak in good. I transferred mine to a 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes after frying, to let it puff up and set good and eggy. Then again, I’m crazy. If you’ve not tried Biscoff, do. It’s fantastic.
I have never had Biscoff, which I know makes me a bad food blogger 😉 These are fabulous with custard, but since I only had 30 minutes and 7 or less ingredients.. per the rules ;-)….
My husband makes Peanut Butter and Banana stuffed french toast. Best. Thing. Ever.
I actually kind of strongly dislike bananas and peanut butter, but this past week while at Harry and David’s headquarters in Oregon, I was introduced to a banana peanut butter.. which is kind of life changing 😉
Oh my. I know 5 little boys who would be extremely happy with their Mama if this was made in this house. I see this on the horizon very soon. ♥
YAY! Oh love, I miss your face! I looked for that nifty sock bun thingy and couldn’t find one… must search Amazon.. I need that in my life.
Yum! Consider yourself voted for! 🙂 And I am a total PB lover!
I love you <3 Thank you, doll
I love french toast, and I love peanut butter! This will be made, and my son will love you! Voting now!
Aww Hi Erin! Thank you! I can’t wait to check out your Quinoa bites!
While peanut butter isn’t my absolute favorite I don’t hate it. This, however, is a must make .
Micha, I totally understand! Let me know if you make this, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
That looks super delicious, Rachel! Yum, yum, yum.
Thank you, Crystal! I just bought a LunchBlox for myself, so I must go see what you think of them now 😉
I think they’re great. Although, they not be so great for little hands. The lids go on quite well and can be hard to get off.
What a great idea! Thanks!
I will dream about this tonight.
This is Prolly too late but I am a person who is meh about peanut butter. Like the stuff but its not very high on my list of foods.
