Blueberry Jam Stuffed French Toast

From Amy at She Wears Many Hats; adjustments made for Intervale Food Hub members

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream (or half and half)
  • Zest of one orange, approx. 1-2 teaspoons
  • Juice of one orange, approx. ¼ cup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • ¼ cup blueberry preserves (or favorite preserves)
  • 8 slices of sturdy bread, sliced thick (I used a multigrain)
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Lightly whisk the eggs, cream, orange zest, juice, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar and salt together in a shallow baking dish to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together cream cheese and preserves.
  3. Make 4 sandwiches using the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Carefully dip each sandwich in the egg mixture; be sure to flip being careful to cover all sides completely. Let them rest on a plate while you prepare the griddle or skillet.
  5. Heat griddle or skillet over low-medium heat. Depending on how much room you have to cook each sandwich, you’ll need to split the butter between batches, roughly using ½ tablespoon per sandwich.
  6. Place sandwiches on heated griddle or skillet, and cook 3-5 minutes per side, until golden brown.
  7. Cut in quarters or halves. Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar and/or syrup.
