I've also always loved IHOP's stuffed french toast. YUMMMM. So, I decided to try the above recipe with an addition of some stuffing. Now, I looked at a ton of stuffed french toast recipes (mainly for the stuffing recipe) and I couldn't find anything that seemed right. Everything said use cream cheese and vanilla. That's it. Um, no. I know IHOP's must have something else in it. Something really creamy and sweet.
Here's what I did:
Melt one stick of butter in the microwave.
In a separate bowl, mix 1 block (8oz.) cream cheese, 1/2 c. powdered sugar, and 1/2 c. sour cream. Mix until thoroughly blended and creamy smooth.
Lay Texas Toast on top of butter/brown sugar mixture. Pour half of egg mixture over bread. Sprinkle bread with cinnamon. Spread cream cheese mixture on top of bread. Layer again with Texas Toast. Top bread with remaining egg mixture.
Once you have all of that done, cover and chill in the fridge over night.
The next morning, sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar. Pop it in the oven on 350 COVERED for 30 mins, then UNCOVERED for 15 mins.

I hope you love it as much as I did!
