Vegan MOFO day 18- Stuffed French Toast

Today I made breakfast for my friend Kaitlin's birthday. She requested French Toast, but I decided to try to make a vegan version of the MAD Irish Toast from the Miss Albany Diner. We used to love to eat there in our pre-vegan days, but haven't been there in a long time... I can't think of anything vegan on the menu. This French Toast at the Ms. Albany comes stuffed with a walnut cream cheese and topped with Maple Syrup, which I remember having Whiskey in it.

So, I made some French Toast from a recipe I found on, and served two slices with some walnut maple "cream cheese." Here's the original recipe --->here. I didn't quite stick to it. Here's what I did..

ingredients for the french toast:
1/3 c. Vegenaise
1/2 c. unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 T nutritional yeast
cinnamon- a couple dashes
nutmeg- i grated some in, maybe 1/4 tsp
8 big slices nice white bread- i used Heidelberg French Peasant Bread
earth balance for the pan

ingredients for the stuffing:
1 tub Tofutti cream cheese
dash cinnamon
1-2 T maple syrup
3 T - 1/4 c chopped walnuts

(stir this all together, works good with room temperature cream cheese)

for the french toast: combine vegenaise, almond milk, nooch, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg , i find this works best with a fork, it becomes a thick mixture, almost a egg-like consistency

dip the slices of bread in the batter, and fry in a skillet. i fried over med heat. i kept the cooked slices warm in the toaster oven, as i cooked all the slices (on the "keep warm" setting)

i took two slices, and spread some of the cream cheese in the middle. then poured a lil maple syrup on the top. we ate these with some tempeh bacon on the side
