    Sydney Mike's Note:

    Found the original of this recipe in the Fall 2009 Taste of Home Cooking School Brand Name Cookbook. Another recipe that has been tweaked! Cooking time really depends on the number of slices of bread that can be cooked at one time!

      Kudos Syd, on a truly spectacular french toast. I enjoyed this so much, I can't wait to make this again. The cheese inside is such a lovely surprise and it blends beautifully with the fruit and maple syrup. I used some of the wonderful maple syrup that my brother brings me from up north, so good and thick and I added candied ginger, dried blueberries, homemade orange peel and my favorite dried and candied cantaloupe for a wonderful taste experience. This has gone into my regular rotation and also into my Best of 2011 Cookbook. Thanks so much for sharing. -:)

      Very enjoyable start to the day today.. For the dried fruit, I used some chopped up banana chips, and walnuts, along with some raisins. Like the cheddar addition here, but the syrup was GREAT ! Wonderful recipe. Made for PRMR tag.
