Tres Leches Stuffed French Toast

It’s decadent, it’s delicious, and it will be the star of your brunch!

Serve with any or all of the following: Fresh sliced fruit (bananas, strawberries), simmered apples, berries, drained and rinsed canned fruit (no shade here; canned peaches are the bomb), candied nuts, regular chopped nuts, whipped cream, etc!

What you’ll need:

Tres Leches “Juice”

  • 1 12 oz can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 8 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/3 C Heavy whipping cream (use the rest of the container to make whipped cream!)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

French Toast Mixture

  • 8 eggs
  • 1 C Tres Leches Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • About 16 slices of Brioche, Challah, or white bread
  • Butter for skillet (if needed)
  • 1 1/2 C Ricotta Cheese

Instructions:

  1. Whisk the Tres Leches ingredients together. You won’t need all of what you make so save the rest of it for drizzling over the created toast, or splashing into your coffee
  2. Whisk the eggs until they are a uniform color, then whisk in the tres leches and salt until a little bubbly
  3. Heat a large skillet on medium (and melt your butter on there if you need it)
  4. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish or bowl so that it’s easy to sop up with the bread, then dip pieces of bread and let them soak on each side for about five seconds
  5. Fry the bread pieces until they’re golden brown, then flip and do the other sides
  6. Serve two pieces with a generous heap of ricotta cheese between them, drizzle with tres leches juice, and offer your preferred ingredients as toppings

Makes about 8 servings. Easy to halve, but you’ll have lots of juice left over! More for your coffee. πŸ˜€
