Stuffed French Toast

Stuffed French toast always sounds delicious, but I always think it will be too rich or be to time consuming to make.  This Recipe from Tasty Kitchen (one of my favorite places to find recipes) was sweet, but not overly sweet, and was not very difficult at all.  The fresh fruit made it feel light and fresh! It was fun to try and would be a great for company!

Stuffed French Toast
From: manda2177 via Tasty Kitchen

1 loaf French Bread
3 Tbsp Any Flavor Preserves (You Can Also Use Jam, Jelly ,Or Fresh Fruit - I used preserves and Fresh Fruit)
½ package Cream Cheese (4 Oz), Softened
2 Eggs
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
½ cup Skim Milk
2 Tbsp Butter

1. Heat skillet on Medium- High heat (or electric griddle to 325 to 350 degrees)

2. Cut french bread into 2-3 inch wide slices. Then, cut halfway into each slice, in the center, creating a ‘pocket’ that your fruit mixture can be stuffed into.

3. In a bowl, place the room temperature cream cheese and three tablespoons of fruit spread of your choice and fresh fruit if you choose. Combine well.

4. In a separate bowl, add eggs, cinnamon, and milk and combine well.

5. Take fruit mixture and stuff into the ‘pockets’ of your french bread slices. When done stuffing each piece of bread, completely coat each piece in egg mixture. Make sure all sides are covered.

6. Put 2 tbsp of butter into a hot skillet and melt completely. Add bread to the skillet and cook roughly about 3-6 minutes on each side, until it reaches a nice golden brown. You want to make sure the cream cheese mixture heats through.

7. When done cooking, serve immediately with butter and syrup if desired.
