VERY Cherry Stuffed French Toast

  • 8    eggs
  • 1/4  cup  evaporated milk
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 6 thick slices of french bread, slit in the center to make a pocket
  • 1  8-ounce package  cream cheese, softened
  • 1  21-ounce can  cherry pie filling
  • 2  tablespoons  butter, margarine or cooking oil
  •     Granulated or powdered sugar (optional)
  •     Maple-flavored syrup (optional)
  • Directions

    1. In a large mixing bowl, beat together eggs, evaporated milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.

    2. Spread each slice of the bread with some cream cheese. Top six of the slices with cherry pie filling, spreading almost to the edges.

    3. Cover each with the remaining bread slices, cream cheese side down. Dip in the egg mixture.

    4. In a skillet or on a griddle, cook the sandwiches in hot butter over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

    5. Cut filled French toast into halves or quarters and dip in or sprinkle with sugar, if you like. Serve with hot maple syrup, if you like. Makes 6 servings.
