Something Special




Mom will always be in my heart and best friend.



I always made something special for her on Mother's Day, after all, she cooked all year long and I learned from the best, she deserved a day of rest.



This was a delicious stuffed french toast I made one year that she loved.



I still make it in her memory.

Mom Loved French Toast!




When Mom was still alive, I wanted to create something for Mother's Day one year that was extremely decadent and combine breakfast with her favorite dessert.



That's where this idea came into play. Mom loved it.


Over the years, as she grew older she had diabetes and I had to learn to make everything sugarless and of course, bread was a factor as well with the carbs.



She had to limit herself to what she could eat and we replaced many of the ingredients to low carb and sugar - free.



I was happy she got to enjoy this before that happened.



With all the low carb bread and sugar-free jams andfresh fruits, it was easily recreated for her.



Never the less she enjoyed this great brunch for Mother's Day.

Easy To Make




This is a really simple recipe, it looks gourmet but I assure you it's easy peasy!



The ingredients are usual pantry ingredients except for the Marsala wine and the Ricotta.



Everything else is easy to find in any supermarket to make this.



I always like to keep the Marsala on hand since I use it for many recipes.

It's a really rich stuffed french toast and the berries make it just gourmet looking with the drizzle of melted chocolate on the plate.

Tips


  • Keep The heat on low too high this will burn
  • Flavor the ricotta to taste, make sure you sample your's first to see if it's sweet enough
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave just 1 minute and swirl it on the plate before the french toast is done to have it ready.
  • Use tongs to dip the bread with, it will hold it together.

Cannoli and Berry Stuffed French Toast

prep time: 10 min cook time: 6 mins total time: 16 mins
This is a special Mother's Day french toast I made called Cannoli stuffed French toast. It has all the flavors of a cannoli for breakfast made with delicious ricotta cheese and thick bread dipped into an egg mixture.

ingredients:

  • 1 loaf of thick baguette or thick bread or use low carb wheat bread
  • 1-8 ounce container ricotta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar or sugar substitute to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Marsala wine
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or use sugar-free substitutes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons of olive oil or 4 teaspoons of unsalted butter mixed with 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Fresh raspberries, blackberries around 1 cup or use strawberries sliced
  • 1 can of pie filling or use fresh: Boysenberries, Raspberries, and Blackberries 
  • Garnish:
  • 1/2 cup Melted Dark Chocolate (I used the microwave for 30 seconds using a good grade candy bar)

instructions:

  1. First, prepare the bread:
  2. Cut your bread every inch but not all the way through leaving a pocket to fill in between both slices. If using low carb sandwich together two slices.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, combine the ricotta, pinch of cinnamon, sugar to taste, and vanilla in a bowl until well combined. Then fold in the chocolate chips. Using around a tablespoon to stuff each pocket on the slice of bread, place on a cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator while making the topping, around 1/2 hour.
  4. In another small bowl cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon powdered sugar and cinnamon. Add the cocoa sugar mix to the milk, with two eggs. Add the Marsala and whisk together until well blended. It should look like very light milk chocolate in color and very smooth.
  5. Heat griddle or fry pan adding (I use only the oil) olive oil or butter.
  6. Coat each side of the stuffed bread slices in the chocolate coating milk mixture using tongs to hold the bread together. Cook on each for around 3 minutes or until golden brown. Place on paper towels to drain any oil off.
  7. On a plate drizzle some melted chocolate chips over the bottom with fork tines for a garnish. Place the cannoli toast on the plate then pour the berries over the Italian cannoli toast.
