Stuffed Egg Nog French Toast

  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 40 min
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup light cream cheese 150 mL
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries or cranberries 60 mL
  • 8 slices multigrain bread
  • 4 tsp orange marmalade 20 mL
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup Sensations by Compliments Egg Nog 250 mL
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 5 mL
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg 1 mL
  • 2 tbsp butter, divided 30 mL
  • icing sugar for dusting

Directions

  • Step 1

    In a small dish, mix cream cheese and dried fruit. Spread mixture onto 4 slices of bread. Spread orange marmalade on remaining 4 slices. Pair the slices to make 4 sandwiches.

  • Step 2

    In a baking dish large enough to hold the 4 sandwiches in a single layer, whisk together the eggs, egg nog, vanilla and nutmeg. Place sandwiches into the dish, turning over to allow bread to soak up the egg nog mixture.

  • Step 3

    Melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter in large, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook sandwiches in batches, about 2 min. per side to brown both sides. Add remainder of butter to skillet as required.

  • Step 4

    Transfer sandwiches onto cutting board; cut each in half. Plate 4 servings. Dust with icing sugar. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
