I also used 2 pieces of bread--great idea--because I have such trouble stuffing things (except my face:). My advice is to use a firm/hearty bread and not squishy Wonderbread.

I made these for my wife's Mother's Day breakfast, she loved it. How ever I used Philly cream cheese-cheese cake filling for the stuffing. It was a perfect 10.
