Ingredients

French Toast

  • 8 slices French bread thick-sliced
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup Orange marmalade
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon

Instructions

French Toast

  • Preheat oven to 300°. Place baking sheet in oven.
  • Cut through the top crust of each bread slice and make a 4” long by 2” deep pocket. Stir together cream cheese and marmalade in a small bowl. Spoon 1 generous tablespoon of cream cheese mixture into each bread pocket.
  • Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a pie plate. Dip bread slices into egg mixture, coating completely. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Place bread on skillet and cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer toast to baking sheet in oven and repeat dipping and cooking the remaining slices. Serve with orange syrup. Serves 8.

Orange Syrup

  • Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; stir until sugar is dissolved. Combine orange juice and cornstarch in a bowl, and then pour into syrup. Simmer gently until thick, 6 to 8 minutes. Add butter and stir until it melts. Sprinkle with orange zest and serve warm.
