Happy Friday! Wait – Happy French Toast Friday!

I’ve had this idea for French Toast Cups for a long time and finally remembered this morning.

Ricotta Filled French Toast Cups

First mix the following in a bowl:

2 eggs or 1/2 cup egg beaters

1 packet of sugar, and a dash of each: cinnamon, salt, vanilla to suite your preference.

Dip 2 slices of bread into the egg mixture soaking thoroughly.

Spray a two cups in a muffin tin with non-stick spray. Then, gently stuffy one piece of bread into each cup. Press down to make sure they are touching down.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. They puff up a lot – this is why you want to press them down before baking.

Remove from the muffin pan carefully so the “cup” stays together. IMG 6371 thumb French Toast Cups

In a separate bowl mix – 1/4 c ricotta and 1/4 c cottage cheese (or all of one) with 1 Tb. sugar and dash of cinnamon.

Dollop half of the mixture on each one of the French Toast Cups.IMG 6367 thumb1 French Toast Cups

The inside of the French Toast Cup is sweet and moist. Make sure you use the sugar called for in the egg mixture and this will be the best part!

    That’s a much fancier breakfast than my one slice of cold leftover pizza eaten while trying to get the baby dressed to go for a run. Well done :)

    AH! I love this! ANY excuse to make french toast in a new fun way makes me really excited. Not that i need an excuse… The fact that they are “cups” kinda makes me need to make them immediately… !

    A friend of mine cooked something very similar to this for me before one morning for breakfast before a big trip to an amusement park. Hers came out just a little crunchy. I think if you bake it at the lowest temperature and pull it out early and let the heat from the pan cook it the rest of the way through it would come out perfect. Just a suggestion. I looooooove the fruit on the top. Just a bit of tart with the sweet french toast makes for a very delicious breakfast!
