I made a lot of changes to this recipe based on what I had in my kitchen, but I think I still stuck to its original intentions, and it turned out wonderful. I used macadamia nuts instead of walnuts or pecans, two slices of white bread for each 2 inch slice of French bread, whipping cream, and Smucker's strawberry jam instead of apricot preserves and orange juice. I had no trouble keeping the slices of bread together because the cream cheese mixture was sticky. This turned out really delicious and really filling, and it took about 30 minutes to make. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!

My family loved this. I left out the nuts because I knew they wouldnt like them. Used strawberry jam also. Also used whole milk instead of the cream. (didn't have any on hand) Also made a few using 2 slices of wholewheat bread and they stayed together just fine.

I stuck to the basic idea of this recipe.I sliced the french bread in half instead of stuffing it(made it much easier) cut out the nut's(i new my kid's wouldnt eat them)spread the cream cheese mixture on one side and used my strawberry jam i made this summer on the other,then made a "sandwich" out of both slices.Dipped in egg mixture.Topped it off with a small dollop of the cream cheese and drizzle with homade strawberry syrup.My kid's loved it i will be making this agin thnx :)
