"Stuffed French toast with a creamy filling is good paired with a fibrous fruit such as a 1/2 cup fresh raspberries. Note: This French toast is high in sodium, primarily because of the cheeses. For a lower-sodium dish, substitute no-salt cheeses if you can find them. You can also try substituting orange, almond or strawberry extract for the vanilla.

6 (2 inch thick) slices
cottage cheese, whipped
lowfat cream cheese
I'm not diabetic, but I need a low-fat diet. This feels like an indulgence, but it's actually good for you, especially with the fruit!
We thought it was pretty good, my very picky 12 yr. old liked it a lot. I used 2 eggs and a little low-fat milk in place of the egg substitute, which is quite expensive. 3 cups would be a lot wasted. I also sprinkled a little cinnamon in with the egg/milk mixture.
SOUNDS GREAT FOR SUNDAY MORNING COOK OUT. THINK I WILL SUBSTITUTE REAL EGGS
AND HALF AND HALF FOR THE MILK.
I agree with the first reviewer I used real eggs and cream. I not sure I would do it all the time but every once in a while you gotta live a little.
It's a neat idea. I did make some changes though. First off, I dropped the cottage cheese and increased the ricotta to 1/2 cup. I also used real eggs instead of the substitute. Then, after I spread the cheese mixture into the bread pockets, I spread about a tsp of seedless raspberry jam inside the pockets and cooked as directed. I served it with a little drizzle of real maple syrup. It's really good but HEAVY. Hubby (who loves french toast) made it through one, I couldn't finish mine.
It's a nice treat but not an every weekend kind of dish.
It is not very often that I make French toast.
I decided to try this one for a Sunday Brunch.
Everyone loved it! It's very heavy. I actually made mine with less ricotta cheese and added more cream cheese for a cream cake taste. I used a sweetner instead of sugar and low fat milk.
This lessened the calories, but still gave it plenty of flavor.
My family loves this recipe!!!! I make a double or triple batch and freeze what we don't eat. They warm up well in the oven. I can't remember what I warm them up on, but try 350 for about 7 min. Watch them because I would hate to have you burn them because I couldn't remember.
It was ok, but nothing great, family said not to make it again.
