This is a nice change from ordinary French toast. I make this more than the standard recipe. Although this is my family’s favorite version, it is very versatile.
A mixture of jam and cream cheese produces a pleasantly creamy and not-too-sweet filling. Feel free to swap other flavors of jam for the apricot used here, or fresh berries for the tropical fruit salad.
You can substitute peanut butter for the cream cheese, use different jams or preserves, different extracts or spices – the options are practically limitless! Serve with maple syrup and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Great for breakfast, brunch or even dessert, this tasty French toast has a hidden pocket of sweet jam inside
Technique tip: Flipping the French toast in the pan and then moving it into the oven results in a finished product that has a seared crisp texture on the outside and a custardy baked inside.
