I was chatting with my mom on the phone the other day. It was her and my dad’s anniversary and she was telling me all about this wonderful breakfast she had just had at a restaurant. Raving…I mean really raving about it…saying how she hoped it wouldn’t disappear off the menu EVER ‘raving’. As she was describing it to me I thought – well, that doesn’t sound too hard to make…so here Mom – a late anniversary gift just for you!
Lemon-Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast with Fresh Blueberries & Syrup
4 slices hearty bread
2 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup Lemon Curd
1/4 cup milk
dash of vanilla (optional)
whipped cream (optional)
Gather your ingredients.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the cream cheese and lemon curd together until smooth.
Crack the eggs and combine with the milk and dash of vanilla in a shallow dish. Spread the lemon-cream cheese mixture on two of the hearty bread slices and top with remaining slices.
Heat a skillet with some margarine. Dip the lemon-cream cheese stuffed bread in the egg mixture on both sides and cook in hot margarine until brown on both sides.
Serve with a dollop or two of whipped cream, some fresh blueberries and blueberry syrup.
Take a big bite! (Hope you like it Mom!)
