Cannoli Stuffed French Toast for #SundaySupper

Cannoli Stuffed French Toast8387592742_f6164fd5a8_oHappy Sunday everyone!! Spring has Sprung where we live in New England! I don’t know about you but when the Spring weather is upon us I get the jitters to bake and make breakfast! I know I know, crazy but this is my fourth Spring since I’ve realized how happy the kitchen makes me so I must admit I’m guilty of these Spring time treats I must whip up! When #SundaySupper came up with the theme of Stuffed, Roll or Wrap I knew exactly what I was going to make!! So a special thanks to Amy of kimchi MOM!! I’ve had this recipe in mind since I saw it on a cooking show I tune into every now and again called The Hungry Girl. I made some changes to make it to my families liking so feel free to adjust to what yours would love!  I’ve made a few recipes of hers, and this one I knew my family would fall all over. Though they tasted like a piece of heaven in my mouth, the pictures aren’t so great so I apologize for that. I realized that they weren’t easy to photograph. I decided to go with this recipe and share it anyways because I think it’s a fabulous idea and it was super YUMMY! So yes I bounded down the stairs Sunday morning after laying in bed for an hour (my husband treats me to that every week aren’t I a lucky Momma bear??!!) I could hear my children happily playing with Daddy so I said, how about breakfast guys!?? Of course I got clapping and yes pleases all around.

Serves: 3

1/2 cup of reduced fat ricotta cheese
6 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used peanut butter chips)
3 tsp. vanilla extract, divided
3 tbsp. of stevia (or sugar)
3 hot dog buns (or low calorie buns)
1 egg
3 egg whites
Sprinkles of cinnamon & sugar (I used my Dixie Crystals shaker)
4 tsp. light whipped butter
powdered sugar for decorating

What to do:

In a small bowl mix together the ricotta cheese, sugar, and cinnamon sugar. Fold in chocolate chips. Set aside.

In a separate bowl beat the egg with the egg whites. Set aside.

Stuff the hot dog rolls with the ricotta cheese mixture and slice them into 4 nuggets.

Place the butter in a sautee/frying pan and place on medium heat. While the butter melts start dunking the nuggets into the egg mixture and add them to the pan one by one. Flip them cooking all sides, yes the mixture will come out here and there.

Keep flipping until all sides are cooked, remove them and place them on a serving plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!

  1. Ummm…can you repeat that? Cannoli stuffed French toast?! Amazing! I LOVE French toast (as you can tell by my contribution to #SS this week) and the cannoli filling just takes it over the top. I might have to double the cannoli filling part so that I can eat a bowl of it by myself w/ a spoon 😉

    1. HAHA I should have skipped the stuffing and ate it straight from the bowl!! Your dish was brilliant as well YUM!

  2. Oh my dad loves cannoli, so I think this would be perfect to make him for Father’s Day coming up in a few months. Special breakfast treat.

    1. It was awesome, light yet satisfying and tasty!! I hope you both enjoy!
