    PB&J Stuffed French Toast Skewers

    Dairy free PB&J Stuffed French Toast Skewers, plus The Ultimate Brunch Dish Round Up

    PB&J Stuffed French Toast Skewers by rachLmansfield

    PB&J STUFFED French Toast Skewers. Oh my gosh.

    You will now never have to choose between PB&J and French Toast again. Not sure how many of you actually were ever in a position but, you get what I’m saying, right?

    These PB&J Stuffed French Toast Skewers are dairy free and oozing with creamy peanut butter and strawberry jelly in each bite. Plus with the addition of fresh berries and sliced bananas, it is the ultimate breakfast/brunch/lunch recipe to enjoy for brunch at home.

    Speaking of brunch, did you know that it is one of my biggest pet peeves? The whole concept of brunch makes me cringe. I love breakfast and don’t want anyone taking that meal away from me. Then there’s also the whole “brunch at 11am” deal that really throws me off. I am up around 7am everyday. The chances of me waiting that long to eat breakfast is absolutely not happening.

    But the average 20-something year old living in NYC thrives over the idea of brunch. Brunch outside, bottomless brunch, all you can eat brunch, and I’m over here like “let’s meet for breakfast or lunch? I wouldn’t feel right having a blog post that has the “ultimate brunch round up” and not give my actual opinion about brunching. Of course I recognize most are not like me and that’s why I am still SO excited to share these 5 other delicious brunch ideas with you. If you’re like me, call it a breakfast or lunch party and go to town on these recipes because they are seriously drool-worthy and will satisfy anyone’s tastebuds.

    You’ll find 6 total recipes by both myself and some of my fellow blogging gals in this blog post for the most perfect brunch.

    10. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side
    11. Remove from pan and place back on cutting board

    LOL I am the same way about brunch. I love the idea of it (breakfast foods at another meal? YES.), but I can rarely get the full brunch experience because I wake up early and therefore pretty much have to have breakfast before a 10am brunch. ? Oh well. Brunch foods are still delicious and can be enjoyed any time of the day! These skewers are insanely creative and adding PB&J to anything is a great idea!

    This makes me like you even more!! I thought I was the ONLY person who hated brunch!! It makes no sense to me either as there is no way I could wait until 11 to eat!! I need my big breakfast right away and then 11 is too early for lunch, haha. This looks soooo yummy – I’ll have to make it next weekend!! xx

    lol I love your little brunch discussion. I feel you. I would just eat breakfast early like normal…. and then eat brunch… and then a late lunch perhaps… and dinner + dessert 😀 Let’s be real.
    Can’t get over how amazing these look!
