1 loaf of Italian bread, sliced 1 1/2” thick
3/4 cup milk
2 TBSP sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup of heavy cream
Pinch of salt
4 TBSP of butter
Filling — 1 cup of whipped cream cheese & 1 cup blueberry jam
To make the filling, mix together the cream cheese and jam — set aside. Next, make a pocket in the bottom of each slice of bread, carefully not cutting all of the way through. Fill with approx. 2-3 TBSP of filling. It’s a little messy, but so worth it! Get a skillet nice and warm with butter while you make the egg mixture. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cream, sugar and cinnamon. Dip the stuffed bread into the egg mixture and brown on each side. It smells heavenly! Serve with a drizzle of quality maple syrup, fresh berries & sliced banana — ENJOY!
The perfect brunch recipe! You can use any flavor jam you like, or even apple butter found at your local market.
