Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cream cheese and jam together in a microwave-safe bowl; cook in the microwave on medium power until softened, about 30 seconds. Stir well.

  • Whisk milk, egg, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together in a bowl until frothy. Dip bread slices into egg mixture until evenly coated on each side.

  • Heat non-stick skillet over medium heat until water drops "skitter" across its surface; add coated bread slices in single layer. Cook, turning frequently to avoid burning, until golden but not yet brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Spoon cream cheese mixture onto 1 slice; cover with second slice. Continue to cook until brown, 1 to 2 minutes more per side.

Cook's Notes:

Use cooking spray or margarine to cook the French toast, if desired.

Do not leave bread in egg mixture too long; it can fall apart.

Very yummy. Did not measure but I know I used a lot less milk than called for. Will be making again and again with different jams every time! Read More

Although I thought the flavors and the idea of this recipe are wonderful but there were definitely some issues with mixture. I made one batch exactly as the recipe stated. The milk to egg ratio was way off and left me with soggy bread After spreading the cream cheese on the hot french toast it completely slid off and was a big mess. I made a second batch using the same milk egg cinnamon vanilla listed in the ingredients but used four eggs and 1 cup of milk since I was making multiple sandwiches. I also let the french toast slightly cool before spreading the cream cheese mixture. I think in future I would spread the cream cheese on the bread and then dip in the egg mixture before cooking. That way I could serve the french toast hot without the filling running out. I used orange marmalade and it worked perfect in the cream cheese filling. I think this is a great recipe idea just didn't work as is for me. Read More

No changes made and while any jam may be used to me it makes more sense to just use a strawberry cream cheese spread if you prefer strawberry jam and cream cheese together. Read More

All the ingredients sounded like this was going to be great but the end result was unappealing. It calls for way too much milk. I used 1/4 cup which is plenty. Any more and the bread would have been falling apart and you'd still have leftover mixture. I microwaved the cream cheese and jam for only 20 sec and it bubbled became runny and I had little chunks of cream cheese in the jam. Then when I poured the jam mixture on the French Toast for the last minute it started to spread everywhere in the pan. I think this would have turned out better if I cooked the French Toast slices first then spread one side with jam the other side with cream cheese and put the two slices together. The recipe is a nice concept. I'd like to try a method that works better for me. Read More

We used Triple Berry Jam and cream cheese. I really can't consider this a sandwich but more of a stuffed french toast. No additional syrup or powdered sugar is needed. Added fresh fruit is great. The milk seems excessive. We made for 2 people using 2 eggs and enough milk to equal 1 1/2 cups of liquid. it was plenty. This is quite easy to make and goes together quickly. Read More

Really what's not to love?! I did reduce the milk b/c that seemed like a lot to use for only one sandwich so I only used about 1/2 cup or so (didn't measure). Perfectly crispy on the outside and soft and fruity on the inside. I served this sprinkled with powdered sugar and thought that was great. I will def be using this simple yummy recipe again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Cream cheese jam French toast? All delicious and just as delicious cooked together! The milk did seem like an excessive amount so I cut it considerably. Sprinkled it with just a little powdered sugar and added in some berries and bacon and you have a gourmet breakfast! Read More

Really good for a quick and easy breakfast! The ingredients given were enough for 1 serving. I had added a dash of icing sugar powder and cinnamon sugar on top of the French toast and it gave it an added taste. Adding fruits on top also complemented the jam inside with the French toast. Would recommend making this again?? Read More
