White Gull Inn: The Winner of GMA's Breakfast Challenge

If you watched “Good Morning America” the weekend of May 15 and 16 you learned who won the Best Breakfast in America Challenge. It was the White Gull Inn in Door County, Wisconsin. I can testify that the winning Cherry Stuffed French Toast slathered in real maple syrup is an amazing breakfast like no other.

The White Gull Inn in Fish Creek is a winner in many categories - accommodations, and scenic location, excellent service. For more than 100 years they have been serving the public. The Inn is just as famous for its Fish Boils – a must-do when in Door County.

Cherry Stuffed French Toast
1 loaf egg bread, unsliced
1 8-ounce packages cheese cream, room temperature
1 cups tart Montmorency cherries, drained, divided
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
cinnamon, for garnish
powdered sugar, for garnish
maple syrup, for garnish

Trim ends from loaf and cut bread into six 1 1/2 inch thick slices.
Make a cut three-quarters down the middle of each slice.
Bread will appear to have to separate slices, but will be joined together at the bottom. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese and one cup of the cherries. Spread approximately 1/6 cup of the mixture into the pocket of each slice of bread. Gently press slices together, evenly distributing filling.

In a separate bowl, beat eggs and milk together. Dip stuffed slices into egg mixture and coat all sides. Place immediately on a lightly oiled, heated griddle and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook over medium heat until golden brown, turning to cook second side.

Remove cooked slices from griddle and place on a cutting board. Gently make a diagonal cut through each slice, forming two triangles. Arrange two triangles on individual plates. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and remaining cherries. Serve with maple syrup and butter.
