I made this for some out of town guests last Saturday and it was fantastic! Everyone loved it and I will definitely be saving this to my Recipe box!
Pretty good, wasn't the greatest Ive ever had and I don't know if Id make it again but no one left any on their plates so it couldn't have been half bad. Id give it a 3.5 stars out of 5!
This was excellent! I did make some modifications. Our family prefers strawberry, I used Smuckers Strawberry Simply Fruit. I used regular cream cheese and let it soften at room temp, then used mixer to whip it. Also, the night before, I sliced up a 16 oz container of strawberries and added a tablespoon of sugar. This morning, they were soft with a nice juice to top the french toast. My family and my guests LOVED it! I will definitely do this again.
I halved this recipe and made two "sandwiches" with apricot jam and two with raspberry. Also ended up using wheat bread because it was what was in the fridge. We really liked the wheat-raspberry combo, but the apricot got kind of lost in the wheat flavor, so if you're going to do apricot jam, definitely use a white bread. The nice thing about the wheat bread, though, was that it was nice and sturdy for soaking and flipping. Finally, I used regular cream cheese with a little milk to loosen it up to a "whipped" texture. All in all a yummy breakfast!
We enjoyed this. I like that the filling is really easy to customize depending on what you have handy. I don't think that the filling needs the extra sugar though. Plenty sweet without it.
I just made this as a late-night snack, and it's pretty good! I scaled the recipe down for one serving; since the amounts were so tiny, I just eyeballed the vanilla and cinnamon. I used Italian bread and Smuckers Simply Fruit Peach Preserves. For my taste, I'd add less cream cheese and more peaches. I'd say play around with the amounts to get the ratio you like. I also rubbed a little extra brown sugar on top of my toast because, hey, why not? :) Thanks for the recipe! Easy and yummy.
I COULDN'T IMAGINE THAT CREAM CHEESE COULD ADD SO MUCH TO FRENCH TOAST, BUT THIS WAS JUST DELICIOUS. DEFINITELY WILL MAKE THIS AGAIN!
