A complete meal looks like it comes straight from a Hallmark movie.


Two slices of perfectly browned thick bread stuffed with pockets of Wisconsin cream cheese and Door County cherries. The sweetness of the cherries is definitely at the forefront of the flavor palette bite after bite. Fresh authentic Door County maple syrup covers the dish to top off the sweetness profile and compliment the cherry taste. There is really nothing like the stuffed french toast with locally sourced fruit, all for such low price.

Grand total for this award winning (yet humble) brunch dish? $11.80 or $15.80 with side of meat. Seems that inflation hasn’t arrived in Northern Wisconsin 😄 💵

Ample Door County cherries combine with perfectly browned bread.



No brainer—simply trust the 1000s of people who voted this #1 in 2010 on GMA!
