I met 2-new cousins in Winco the other day. I was asked about a french toast recipe, well here ya go cousins.
CREAM CHEESE AND ORANGE MARMELADE STUFFED FRENCH TOAST
8-slices (2-inch) egg bread, 16-ounces whipped cream cheese, 10-ounces orange marmalade, 6 beaten eggs, 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, 1 tablespoon orange liqueur, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 4 cups corn flakes, crushed, 2 tablespoons melted butter. Butter flavored shortening for frying and powdered sugar for dusting.
In a bowl mix the cream cheese and marmalade, refrigerate until you are ready to stuff the toast. In a bowl add the eggs, heavy cream, liqueur, vanilla, sugar, and salt. Mix well, set aside. Soak the bread slices in the egg custard for at least 5 minutes on each side. Remove from the custard mix and dip and roll the bread in the corn flakes. Slice the bread, make sure you do not go all the way through!You are slicing the bread to make a pocket for the marmalade stuffing. In a heavy skillet add approximately 4-5 tablespoons of the shortening, melt. Add the bread and fry until the toast is golden brown on both sided. Remove from the skillet, stuff with the cream cheese and marmalade mixture, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with warm maple syrup
