French Toast filled with Strawberry Cream Cheese

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons strawberry preserves
1 tablespoon orange zest
French Toast:
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)
8 slices Texas Toast style bread, challah, or other thick-sliced bread

In a small mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, strawberry preserves, and orange zest until smooth. Set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and orange liqueur. Pour into a shallow bowl, such as a pie plate. Set aside.

With a pairing knife, slice a pocket into the side of the bread. Do not cut all of the way through the bread. Fill bread slices with a heaping spoonful of cream cheese mixture.

In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Dip the filled bread in the egg mixture and place in the skillet to brown on both sides, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining slices.

Serve hot with additional Strawberry Cream Cheese on the side.

Yield: 4 servings
