fromage blanc stuffed french toast

October 13, 2010

Author Notes: this is a chevre-filled twist on the typical brunch specialty. it's a healthy makeover, thanks to the probiotic and nutrient-packed goat cheese. plus it's even more delicious. any fresh berry can be substituted for the strawberries. if Belle + The Bees breakfast cheese is not available in your area, try mixing a tablespoon of honey into the amount of fromage blanc called for in the recipe.bellechevre
