Stuffed Peach French Toast
1 - 1 lb. sliced french bread 1 inch thick
4 - Tablespoons peach preserves
1 - 8 oz. Pkg. Cream cheese, softened
6 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk or half & half
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Fresh peaches, powdered sugar, maple syrup
In blender, combine softened cream cheese and preserves. Make a pocket in sliced
french bread and stuff each piece with 2 tablespoons of mixture. Place in single
layer in large pan or dish. With wire whisk, combine eggs, milk sugar and
vanilla. Pour mixture over bread, turning once. Do this carefully, so the bread
will stay together. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from refrigerator 1/2 hour before cooking, so it will warm up. Grill,
till brown, on both sides. Do not press down on bread while cooking.
Slice fresh peaches and mix sugar, to your taste, to make a
syrup. Toss gently. Serve each piece of toast with peach mixture and powdered
sugar. Also good with maple syrup.
