Spicy Chipotle French Toast #KraftFreshTake


Spicy Chipotle French Toast

I am so excited to share this new program with Kraft Foods that I am a part of.  Kraft has a new product line out called Kraft Fresh Take.  You may have seen it in the cheese case at your grocery store.  Kraft Fresh Take is a cheese and seasoned breadcrumb mixture, and it is a busy cooks dream.  I was given the Spicy Chipotle Cheddar variety for my challenge.

Spicy Chipotle French Toast

I was challenged to come up with 3 original recipes using Spicy Chipotle Cheddar.  The first recipe was to be made in a skillet, incorporate whole wheat, and could double as breakfast/brunch.  This french toast is what I came up with, and it is incredible.  I made this with my mother-in-law when she was here a couple weeks ago, and we both loved it.  It came together in about 15 minutes, and it is highly adaptable to what your family likes.  I topped with a fluffly scrambled egg, but if you like a fried egg than go for it!

The cheese and breadcrumb mixture gave a crunch and flavorful crust to the french toast.  The chipotle gave it a little kick, which was great with the eggs.  If you wanted to do this for a brunch you could set out a buffet, so everyone could pick there own toppings.

Make sure to follow along on Twitter with #KraftFreshTake for other great ideas.  Stay tuned because I have 2 more great recipes coming, and a wonderful giveaway in a couple weeks!
