Recipe provided courtesy of Spice Islands and Butler House on Grand Bed and Breakfast, Des Moines, Iowa.
1 loaf (16 ounces) French bread, unsliced
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup peach OR apricot preserves
1-1/4 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands Ground Saigon Cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Spice Islands Ground Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands 100% Pure Bourbon Vanilla Extract
2 tablespoons butter
Slice bread into 14 to 16 slices (about 1 inch thick). Then cut a pocket into each slice, cutting from the top-crust almost to, but not through the bottom crust.
In a small bowl, stir together softened cream cheese and peach preserves. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture into each pocket.
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Dip stuffed bread slices into the egg mixture.
On a griddle or skillet, melt butter. Add stuffed bread slices. Fry over medium heat until golden brown, turning at least once (allow 2 to 3 minutes per side). Serve with maple syrup.
