Raspberry & Goat Cheese Stuffed French Toast

For Mother's Day breakfast this year, I decided to try this french toast with orange butter recipe from the February/March issue of ReadyMade and it came out beautifully! If you're looking for a delicious, simple breakfast, I definitely recommend giving this a try. The orange butter adds a little something extra and it's simple as well!


  • 1 stick unsalted butter at room temp
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
Mix these three ingredients together to make your orange butter and refrigerate until ready to use.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 slices french bread, very thick (1 inch or more)
  • 4 tablespoons goat cheese at room temp
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsalted butter for frying toast
  • maple syrup to serve
Whisk together eggs, milk, orange zest, honey, and salt. Pour into a shallow baking dish and set aside.

Cut an opening that extends along the middle of each slice of bread making sure not to tear the bread. I found it easier to cut the slices in half first. Carefully spread 1/4 of the goat cheese into the opening and add some berries. Gently press and repeat with remaining slices. Dip each slice into the egg mixture for about 15 seconds per side.

Heat a tablespoon of butter in a large pan over medium heat. Cook each piece of bread until golden brown on both sides.

Serve warm with orange butter and syrup!
