A quick and tasty recipe courtesy of Robert Irvine(from Dinner Impossible) on Paula's Party show. Yum!
- 1 loaf challah (or other yeast egg bread)

- 1⁄4 cup butter (1/4 cup)
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup whole milk (or almond, soy, or rice milk)
- Slice challah bread into thick pieces.
- Combine the cream cheese, sugar, and cranberries together. Cut a pocket into the bread and stuff cream cheese mixture inside.
- Melt butter over medium heat in a skillet.

Lovely, lovely french toast Sharon, I really enjoyed this. I scaled this down for one. This treat is truly decadent. Rich, creamy, sweet, tart and tangy. I love challah bread, it is the perfect choice for this delicious french toast. It was easy to put together and all the flavors compliment each other perfectly. I will make this again and will add a little orange rind to further enhance the cream cheese and a little less sugar. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
