"Lemon zest and mascarpone stuffed into thick white bread slices, dipped in batter, pan fried, and smothered in fresh peach sauce. I love this recipe for breakfast but it could be fancy enough for dessert too." — Escapechef

This recipe was delectable. I have prepared French toast per this recipe three times and the French toast has been awesome each time. Each time I have used Texas Toast as I could not source the Mexican Bolillio Rolls. I find that if you don’t over saturate your bread in batter (to a point of sogginess) and that if your skillet or griddle is hot enough, the mascarpone filling should not melt as it takes the toast less than a minute (about 45 seconds) to brown on each side. This is a recipe that one should definitely try more than once--making adjustments according to one’s taste; i.e. with different fruit, etc. Also to those who cannot locate Mascarpone cheese or the cheese is too expensive etc., I have found an awesome substitute for Mascarpone cheese that is as good as, if not better, than the real thing. Enjoy! Mascarpone Cheese Substitute: 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream 2 1/2 tablespoons sour cream Combine well. Do not substitute low fat cream cheese or sour cream.
Loved the idea of this recipe, it sounds very warm and comforting. Tried it this morning for daughter's birthday brunch. While they all said they enjoyed it and that it was good... I was a little less impressed. Used the bread suggested and I don't know, just seemed to much bread to filling ratio. I will make again but making a few changes. Probably will try Texas toast and making a sandwich version before frying in a pan. Peach topping was very good and could see other toppings being just as good.
Oh, wow! I had left over mascarpone from a dessert recipe, and not knowing what else to do, I looked here. This recipe is absolutely delicious! The only changes I made were: I used french bread instead of bollio, and I added regular sugar to the mascarpone in addition to the powdered, because I didn't think the confectioners cut it. Also, since it wasn't peach season, U used frozen peaches and it still came out really well. I'd recommend this recipe to anyone!
****UPDATE: I just wanted to share a much easier way of making this. Forget the loaf and cutting and stuffing! Just buy a presliced loaf of french sandwich bread and spread the filling between two slices and make as normal. So much easier and I say even better!
This recipe was wonderful! The subtle flavors of the lemon in the marscapone and the nutmeg in the peaches really made an exciting, yet warm/comforting breakfast. My husband stated that he much preferred this breakfast to anything else we've had before because it's not overtly syrupy sweet like so many other french toast/pancake recipes. The only changes I made was using canned peaches as this was a last minute recipe and I didn't have fresh. Since the canned peaches were already sweeter than fresh I did not add the granulated sugar, but just left in a little bit of the light syrup it came in and then seasoned according to the recipe. I also used plain bread slices as I've never even seen Mexican Bolillo Rolls in my small northern town. I will definitely be using this recipe again in the future. Thanks so much!
My favorite allrecipes.com recipe! Absolutely fantastic. I've made this several times and with different breads. Of French, bolillo rolls, blue berry crepes and sub rolls, the bolillo rolls were the easiest to work with and the fluffiest. I found them in the bakery bread section of the grocery store near the buns and dinner rolls. The texture of the French bread made it difficult to stuff without tearing. The fresh lemon zest makes this dish. The peaches were excellent and I've also modified it with fresh blue berries and fresh black berries. Easy to make & decadent, this is our 'go to' recipe for special occasions and company. Highly recommend.
I love this recipe. I used the french bread and cut it into thick slices. I used frozen respberries instead of peaches for the sauce. This made a sauce with a bit of a tart flavor to go with sweetness of the mascarpone. It came together so well and tasted wonderful.
This really was awesome. My new favorite breakfast. I did use the rolls, even though they make tiny pieces, but they were very very good. You could probably use any type of fruit (apples, strawberries, blueberries...).
I made some changes to this to suit my minimalist cooking style and make it a little healthier. Just made plain french toast without the pockets with a good multi grain bread. Spread the mascarpone filling in the middle of two pieces and served with fresh peaches and blueberries. I thought the blueberries were a nice compliment to the lemon and peaches. My teenage son will be demanding I make this every weekend, and I will happily comply. :)
