Pineapple-Stuffed French Toast


A dressed-up version of French toast has the sweet tropical flavor of pineapple. I use homemade hot fudge sauce for topping.

2 servings


  • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple, drained

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

  • 4 slices good bread

  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 tablespoons hot fudge sauce, or to taste


  1. Mix pineapple and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. Spread each slice of bread with 1 1/2 teaspoon cream cheese. Top 2 slices with 1/4 cup pineapple mixture apiece; reserve remaining pineapple mixture. Place remaining slices of bread atop pineapple mixture and press lightly to make 2 sandwiches.

  2. Whisk remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, milk, egg, sugar, and vanilla extract in a shallow bowl. Lay each sandwich in milk mixture and let bread absorb mixture for a few seconds; flip and repeat.

  3. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt butter in the hot skillet, and fry sandwiches on both sides in butter until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Top each sandwich with half the remaining pineapple mixture and drizzle 1 tablespoon hot fudge sauce over pineapple.
