Stuffed French Toast

This is so easy and sooo good!

4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
8 slices wheat bread, crust removed
3 Tbs. blueberry (or your favorite) preserves or jam
8-10 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 Tbs. vanilla

In a small bowl, stir cream cheese and ricotta until smooth. Divide cheese among 4 pieces of bread and spread to edges. Spoon jam in middle of each slice on top of cheese. Top with other slice of bread and slice in half diagonally.

In a 9x13 pan, beat eggs with whipping cream and vanilla. Soak "sandwiches" in egg mixture, turning once.

Heat butter in large pan or griddle over medium heat (I put an electric skillet on about 300). Saute French toast until brown on each side, turning once.

Serve with warm maple syrup and fresh fruit.

This easily serves 4-6 people.
