Inn at Turkey Hill French Toast Muffins
Makes 12 French Toast Cups or 6 servings.
3 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
7 cups cubed bread (cut in ½ inch cubes )
4 oz. cream cheese
Maple syrup or your favorite vanilla glaze (for serving)
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a muffin tin (for 12 muffins) with butter or cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla extract. Add the cubed bread to the bowl and fold until combined and the bread has absorbed all of the liquid.
3. Divide the bread mixture among the muffin tin cups. Fill bottom of cups with half the bread mixture, add cream cheese to cups. Fill the cups with the remaining bread mixture to cover the cream cheese, pressing mixture lightly into each cup to compact it.
4. Bake the French Toast Muffins for 25 to 30 minutes until they are slightly crisped on top and cooked throughout. Allow the cups to cool for 5 minutes in the muffin tin, then scoop each one out and serve topped with the maple syrup or vanilla glaze.
