Stuffed French Toast (Tom)

Emeral was a no-show on Mother’s Day. So I took it upon myself to make my kid's Mom a special breakfast served in bed. 

For 2 servings you will need: 

-         1 French Baguette sliced in rounds Your baker can slice it for you.
-         4 oz. Cream Cheese. Whipped or the soft spreading kind
-         4 oz. Cherry Preserves
-         1 oz. Butter
-         1 Egg
-         ¼ Cup Milk
-         2 Drops Vanilla Extract
-         Cherry or Raspberry Syrup. At room temperature.You can find this in a specialty shop or your grocer will carry Smucker’s brand.
-         Bacon or Ham is optional 

Beat egg, milk and vanilla in a large bowl. Heat a frying pan to medium heat. Add the butter to the pan. Spoon one side of 4 rounds with the cream cheese. Then spoon one side of 4 rounds with the cherry preserves. Put together like a sandwich and place them in the egg wash mixture in the bowl. Coat all sides generously. Remove and place the toast in the melted butter pan. Cook one side for approximately 1 ½ minutes then flip over cooking the other side for about the same time. Both sides should be golden brown. Serve on a plate. Pour some sauce over the toast and enjoy.
