French Toast Sandwiches
This morning we woke up at 3:30 a.m. to wind and rain, so we decided to postpone today’s banding session and went back to sleep. So by the time we got up again, we’d been in bed for almost 12 hours! The breeze is still strong but the rain had cleared up and the sun was out, and it was a perfect day for brunch on the porch.
I had an idea to make cream cheese and jam french toast sandwiches for quite some time now, but had never tried it. Last shopping trip I picked up a jar of Crofter’s Organic raspberry jam, as I had noticed it is sweetened with fair trade sugar. It turned out to be not-too-sweet, which is how I like my jam, and perfect for this recipe.
Cream Cheese and Jam French Toast Sandwiches
2-3 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 slices bread
raspberry jam or flavour of choice
In a bowl wide enough to fit your bread in, whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla. Spread two slices of bread with cream cheese. Spread the other two slices with jam. Sandwich together. Dip in egg mixture and let the excess drip off. Fry in greased frying pan until golden and serve as desired.
I don’t actually measure the milk in my french toast batter, but in my experience the less the better.
We had a crew exchange last week so unfortunately I won’t be putting a Gabrielle seal-of-approval on my recipes anymore ;). But now Judiete is here and she proclaimed this delicious. I’ll be definitely making this again.
