Mock Stuffed French Toast

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 8 slices of bread
  • 1/2 c. low fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. preserves

In a shallow bowl, mix eggs, milk, sugar and cinnamon thoroughly. Carefully dip each slice of bread into the mixture, coating evenly. Cook on a hot griddle until golden brown - about 4 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, combine cream cheese and preserves in a mixing bowl. Stir until well blended - there may be some lumps.

While the French toast is still hot, carefully spoon 1/4 of the preserve mixture onto the center of each of four pieces. Place the remaining pieces over the top, creating a "pocket" of preserve mixture. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, maple syrup, or your favorite topping and enjoy.
