Amazing Stuffed French Toast Recipe
- 1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 C. crushed pineapple
- 1/2 C. chopped pecans, toasted
- 1 loaf (16oz.) French bread
- 4 large eggs
- 1 C. whipping cream
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. ground ginger
- 1 jar (12oz.) apricot preserves
- 1/2 C. orange juice
Beat cream cheese and pineapple at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy; stir in pecans. Cut bread into 12 (1 1/2" thick) slices; cut a pocket through top crust of each slice. Stuff each slice evenly with cream cheese mixture. Combine eggs with whipping cream, vanilla extract, and ginger, stirring well with a wire whisk. Dip bread slices in egg mixture, coating all sides. Cook on a lightly greased griddle over medium-high heat 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Combine preserves and orange juice in a saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring constantly until melted. Serve with hot toast.
