Stuffed French Toast Ring with Fresh Fruit

Key to Success #1 – Let’s Get Fancy, Shall We?

This Stuffed French Toast Breakfast Ring is an upgraded version of baked French Toast.

You can certainly bake this Stuffed French Toast in a 9X13 baking dish but baking it into the shape of a ring makes it extra special.

Go ahead and break out your good china because we’re fancy now.

To make your breakfast ring, use a half sheet rimmed baking pan.

These are about the size of a cookie sheet but they have a nice rim around them.

It’s the same pan you would use for a sheet cake.

The toppings are also a big highlight of this dish.

I went with fresh raspberries and blueberries in the center of my French Toast Ring but you could use any fruit that you like.

I think it would be fun to have a little bowl of whipped cream served alongside the French Toast Ring.

Key to Success #2 – Bring the Ring of Crescent Roll Dough

The Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dough is perfect for this recipe because it’s so easy to form into a rectangle and then roll into a log.

One of the tricks to this recipe is cutting your log into 12 equal pieces.

It’s a lot easier than you think though.

First, make sure you use a serrated knife.

You’ll want to lightly saw back and forth through the dough.

Since you’ll be cutting through the filling too, you may want to wipe off the knife of your blade with a paper towel between each slice.

Second, go ahead and put a cutting board under your dough so that you don’t damage your knife.

The trick to cutting even slices is to start by cutting your log in half then cut each half in half again.

You’ll end up with four equal pieces.

Take each of these pieces and cut them into three slices.

You’ll end up with 12 perfect slices.

Key to Success #3 – Let’s Chill Out – Chill the Crescent Dough Overnight

After you get your dough slices cut up, you’ll want to gently place them into a zip-top bag and cover them with the egg mixture.

Let this mixture chill out in your fridge for at least 30 minutes so that the dough will soak up all that egg goodness.

You can make this recipe ahead of time and let it hang out in the fridge overnight so that you can bake it in the morning.
