Cream cheese and raspberry jam sandwiches are transformed into wonderful slices of stuffed French toast! Feel free to experiment with this recipe - it's very versatile.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 8 slices oatnut bread
- 1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
- 5 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
- 1 tablespoon butter
Spread 4 slices oatnut bread on one side with cream cheese. Spread remaining 4 slices on one side with raspberry jam. Press cream cheese slices together with jam slices, forming sandwiches.
In a medium, shallow bowl, beat together the eggs, milk and almond extract.
Melt butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium high heat. Dip sandwiches in the egg mixture to coat. Place in the skillet, and cook on both sides until golden brown.
