Stuffed French Toast

1/2 cup cream cheese (about 5 ounces)
2 tablespoons strawberry or apricot spreadable fruit
8 1-inch slices french bread (or texas toast)
2 egg whites
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon apple pie spice (or you could just use cinnamon)
Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup strawberry or apricot spreadable fruit (I just bought the pie filling fruit)

1. In small bowl combine cream cheese and 2 tablespoons spreadable fruit. Using a serrated knife, form a pocket in each bread slice by making a horizontal cut halfway between the top and bottom of the crust edge, slicing not quite all the way through. Fill each pocket with about 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture.

2. In a small bowl beat together egg whites, egg, milk, vanilla and apple pie spice. Lightly coat an unheated nonstick griddle with cooking spray. Heat griddle over medium heat.

3. Dip stuffed bread slices into egg mixture, turning to coat both sides. Place bread slices on hot griddle cooking about 3 minutes or until golden brown on both sides, turning once.

4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan heat the 1/2 cup spreadable fruit until melted, stirring frequently. Serve over french toast.

This was simple and tasty!!! And I topped it with powdered sugar.

That sounds and looks awesome! I would totally make it if Steve could eat it. Maybe I'll make it for myself sometime! Thanks, Tristy!

This meal is truly fantastic. Quite an explosion on the taste buds. The bad thing about this meal is that Tristy doesnt make it every day.
