Directions
  1. Spread 1 teaspoon cream cheese onto each slice of bread. Spread 1 teaspoon fruit spread over top of each. Put bread together to form 4 sandwiches. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, skim milk, and vanilla extract. Beat well, using a fork. Spray a griddle or large skillet with butter-flavored cooking spray. Dip each sandwich into egg mixture, coating both sides evenly. Place on griddle and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve at once.

I have made this recipe several times since it has been published and it is wonderful. Most of the time I use the white bread called for in the recipe but it is also wonderful with whole wheat bread.

Made the french toast with my granddaughters on Sunday. It was a big hit, they loved it.

I tried this recipe today and it was wonderful. The cream cheese and the spreadable fruit in the middle was a big hit. I really enjoyed it.

If you want some extra crunch and fiber, after dipping in egg mixture/before putting in skillet, dip in some finely crushed nuts or low carb crushed cereal crumbs. You will get a nice crunch toasty finish. Just remember to add your carb count for additional topping. You can also experiment with different flavors of fruit spreads. I love apricot or peach spread and a crushed pecan topping. Hope you all enjoy.

Sounds great. I am always looking for new breakfast recipes as I have very few choices to choose from. Please put more breakfast recipes on the site. I would greatly appreciate it.
