Oh, back to school. Back to school. (If you sang that in your head as Billy Madison… we need to be friends.)
Hey there. Want to hear something crazy? Braiden starts second grade today. Crazy. 27 years old and I have a second grader. Good. Grief. He’s growing up fast.
He is a little nervous to start at a new school but his teacher sent this home at open house to read before bed last night and I thought it was adorable.
He really liked it too.
I thought this next recipe would be a perfect fit for the occasion. Not that my child actually ate it. His breakfast of choice for he first day of school was a good ol’ Toaster Strudel but he did say this French toast was great though so I guess I’ll make it I the win column. I thought it was pretty damn good myself so, yes… in the win column.
I’m not gonna lie, I made these at 9pm last night for this blog post. So I can contest that these are also good for Brinner. I’m just going to stop talking now and give you the recipe. Cool? Cool. I also included a little video for you down below because I’m nice like that. No need to thank me. See you tomorrow and let me know if you try it.
P.S. My recipe card plug in isn’t working right now for some reason so I’ll convert it into a printable card once I figure it out. I tell you, I leave for three months and everything just falls apart!

* 2 Eggs
* 2 Teaspoons Vanilla, divided
* 2 Tbsp Milk
* 4 oz Cream Cheese
* 1/2 Cup Ricotta Cheese
* 2 Tbsp Sugar

Slices of Bread
Using a cup or cookie cutter cut the bread into circles and cut off the crust. Roll slightly with a rolling pin to flatten.
mix together eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and milk in a bowl and whisk together.
Dip bread in the egg mixture on both sides and place in a buttered frying pan until golden brown on each side. Medium high heat is best. takes around 2 minutes on each side.
In a separate bowl mix together cream cheese, ricotta cheese, sugar, vanilla, honey, and mini chocolate chips. Mix with a fork until all combined.
Using a spoon, piping bag, or plastic bag, put a line of filling into the center of each circle bread slice. Fold in edges. Top with melted chocolate, syrup, honey, or maple syrup if you’d like.
