Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (9-12 inches) French bread
  • ½ package (4 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons fruit spread, any flavor, jelly, jam
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • your choice of fresh fruit, for topping (rainbow colors suggested)
  • butter and syrup, optional, for toppings

Instructions

  • Heat skillet to medium heat or an electric griddle to 325-350°F.
  • Cut the french bread into 1½-2 inch-wide slices. (You can cut off the ends and discard them.) Then, with a paring knife, go back and cut halfway into each slice, in the center, creating a ‘pocket’ that your cream cheese mixture can be stuffed into.
  • In a bowl, place the room temperature cream cheese and the fruit spread of your choice. Combine well until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, cinnamon, and milk, mixing well.
  • Evenly divide the cream cheese mixture to fill the ‘pockets’ of your French bread slices. Place on a baking sheet. (I used a piping bag with the tip cut off for ease; you could also use a spoon, but it will be messier when filling the pockets.)
  • When done stuffing each piece of bread, completely coat each piece in the egg mixture. Make sure all sides are covered. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread before frying.
  • After the bread is stuffed and coated, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a hot skillet. Add all of the bread to the skillet and cook roughly about 3-6 minutes on each side, until it reaches a nice golden brown. You want to make sure the cream cheese mixture heats through.
  • When done cooking, add fruit for the topping in a rainbow-colored pattern. Serve immediately with butter and syrup (optional).
