This is the one of the BEST French Toast recipes I’ve ever had: Cheesecake French Toast, made with King’s Hawaiian Hamburger Buns!

french toast made with rolls and stuffed with cheesecake on white plate

It’s SUMMER! Today is the last day of school. Jordan is going to be (gulp) a third grader!

Let’s not discuss the fact that, at this moment, I’m on an airplane to BlogHer Food and her last day photo was taken by my husband, after specific instructions on where to stand. I’m not going to let the mom guilt get to me for missing today, because it’s SUMMER. And I can make it up to Jordan by making some awesome breakfasts for her.

During the school year, breakfast is such a rush. She begs for pancakes. For waffles from scratch. For french toast. She ends up with cereal. Not during summer. In summer, I’ll make her things like this Cheesecake French Toast.

This is amazing you guys. It’s cheesecake stuffed inside of a King’s Hawaiian Hamburger Bun and then dipped to have a crust coating on the outside. Yes, I just said all those words and put them together in one sentence.

You need to make this for your kids. For your husband. Shoot, you need to make it for you.

In order to do that, you’ll need to head over to the King’s Hawaiian Blog to read the post and you can get the recipe here. Remember, I’m a contributor for them? Well, this is my newest recipe. Enjoy!

Thanks for reading!

  1. OMG, I love it! Every Kings Hawaiian thing you make I die over – I just love that stuff! And cheesecake flavored french toast? You’re brilliant.

  2. Made with King’s Hawaiian? How could they not be delicious? Love that you stuffed them with cheesecake!

    I just made about 100 pancakes and waffles and froze them so the kids can have “real breakfast” in the summer, but I don’t have to spend all my summer mornings doing dishes 😉

    1. I need to do that! I just haven’t gotten around to it. My mom did some for me when I was in Austin. Thank goodness!

  3. Dorothy … you have outdone yourself! I should have read this earlier … it would have been breakfast this morning 🙂 It will be on the menu next weekend!

  4. Love it! I’ve always just dipped my French toast in an egg/milk mixture before frying it, but the graham cracker crumb idea sounds amazing! I bet this would be really good with a fruit topping – like a strawberry cheesecake French toast kind of thing 🙂

  5. Genius! I love it. I might try it with the Portuguese sweet bread from across the street at Leonard’s. I love living in a place with so much diversity!
