Stuffed French Toast

Serving size:  1 piece
Points plus: 5 points

I made these this morning and fell in love!  They are sooo good!  Love them!

1 loaf french bread
3 Tbsp. any flavor fruit spread ( I used homemade strawberry jam)
1/2 pkg cream cheese (4 oz) at room temp
2 eggs
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup milk

Cut french bread into 2-3 inch wide slices.
Then, with a paring knife, go back and cut halfway into each slice, in the center, creating a ‘pocket’ that your fruit mixture can be stuffed into.
In a bowl, place the room temperature cream cheese and three tablespoons of fruit spread. (I used homemade strawberry jam)
Combine well.
In a separate bowl, break 2 eggs; add cinnamon and milk and combine well.
Now, take fruit mixture and stuff into the ‘pockets’ of your french bread slices. Place on a baking sheet.
When done stuffing each piece of bread, completely coat each piece in egg mixture. Make sure all sides are covered. Do all pieces before starting to fry.
Spray hot skillet with pam. Add all of the bread to the skillet and cook roughly about 3-6 minutes on each side, until it reaches a nice golden brown. You want to make sure the cream cheese mixture heats through.
When done cooking, serve immediately with butter and syrup.  I topped mine with some fresh strawberries and powder sugar too. Eat up and enjoy!!!
