Blueberry and Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast ~ You’re Gonna Hate Me in the Morning!

Have you ever had an obscene breakfast?  Well, you’re about to!

This stuff is so freakishly good, so amazingly decadent it should be banned in the U.S.  I’m totally serious. The cream cheese forms this warm creamy custard like center when its baked. OMG!

You can use just about any fruit that would go with French toast.  Strawberries, bananas… Whatever you prefer.  But of course the syrup recipe would change though.

It’s great for a Sunday brunch with family and friends.  Go ahead, have that pound of bacon with it!  Why not?!  You’re going to hate me anyway!
