Cranberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

Start to finish: 20 minutes

Servings: 4



Ingredients:



4 ounces cream cheese, softened

¼ cup chopped dried cranberries

2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger

1 tablespoon honey

8 slices cinnamon swirl bread

2/3 cup fat-free half-and-half

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground dry ginger

Butter, as needed

Maple syrup, to serve



Method:



In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, cranberries, crystallized ginger and honey. Divide this mixture between 4 slices of the cinnamon swirl bread, spreading to just ½ inch from the edge. Top with the remaining 4 slices of bread to make 4 sandwiches.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, cinnamon and dry ginger. Dunk each of the sandwiches into the egg mixture to thoroughly coat and soak them.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt just enough butter to coat the pan. Working in batches, fry the sandwiches for 4 minutes per side, or until nicely toasted and heated through. Add butter between batches. Serve warm with maple syrup.
