A Surprise-Inside French Toast

A Surprise-Inside French Toast

19

"Stuffed French toast with a creamy filling is good paired with a fibrous fruit such as a 1/2 cup fresh raspberries. Note: This French toast is high in sodium, primarily because of the cheeses. For a lower-sodium dish, substitute no-salt cheeses if you can find them. You can also try substituting orange, almond or strawberry extract for the vanilla. This recipe is from The WEBB Cooks, articles and recipes by Robin Webb, courtesy of the American Diabetes Association."

I'm not diabetic, but I need a low-fat diet. This feels like an indulgence, but it's actually good for you, especially with the fruit!

SOUNDS GREAT FOR SUNDAY MORNING COOK OUT. THINK I WILL SUBSTITUTE REAL EGGS AND HALF AND HALF FOR THE MILK.

I agree with the first reviewer I used real eggs and cream. I not sure I would do it all the time but every once in a while you gotta live a little.
