Strawberry-Rhubarb Stuffed French Toast

Have you ever had a dish that you've made and told yourself, "I'm just going to have one bite," and then the next thing you know you are licking the plate and your dish has disappeared????

That happened to me when I made my very first stuffed french toast!

I made the fruit compote the day before and decided to just "try" the recipe out to it's entirety before serving it in the morning and boom! Gone. I blinked and the entire dish was gone. I must have blacked out and eaten this french toast because all I remember telling myself was that I was "just going to have one bite." Whoops! 

The Strawberry-Rhubarb compote is so good alone, you could just use it for toast, english muffins, pancakes, etc. But spread it between two slices of french toast and top with powdered sugar and vanilla becomes the best french toast ever!

To go along with our mouth-watering breakfast of stuffed french toast perfection, did I forget to mention it's BERRY WEEK with the Theme Weavers!!!!

I've joined together again with my very favorite ladies in the blogsphere to bring you everything BERRIES! What a perfect theme with all the fresh produce and berries at the Farmers' Market.

Here's the line-up of all the berry-tastic recipes we've created for you...

Fantastic, right?!?!? Such a great collection of berry recipes to pick from!
