This recipe came from a booklet from the Dairy Farmers of Canada. It's easy and impressive. If you don't have Brie cheese on hand, the following may be used for a change of taste: Havarti, Mozzarella. Cheddar or Gouda.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Honey Cranberries

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups cranberries, fresh or frozen
  • 13 cup honey
  • The Rest of the recipe

  • 5 eggs
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 23 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 slices good quality whole grain bread
  • 13 lb brie cheese, sliced (about 160 g)
  • butter, for cooking

Directions

  1. In saucepan, melt butter and cook cranberries over medium heat. Add honey and continue cooking until cranberries are soft and honey has thickened, about 3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile in a wide, shallow dish, beat eggs with sugar, milk and vanilla.
  3. Melt butter in 2 large non-stick pans to coat pans.
  4. Dip each slice of bread into egg mixture, several seconds per side. Bread should be well-coated but not saturated. Cook immediately, 3 - 5 minutes per side, depending on thickness and desired level of doneness.
  5. Arrange as follows on 4 serving plates; honey-cranberry sauce on plate then 1 slice french toast, top with sliced brie and cranberries, another piece of french toast, top with honey cranberries plus an artfully placed wedge of brie and a nice drizzle of sauce.
  6. Serve with warm honey if desired.
  7. NOTE: French toast may be prepared ahead and reheated in oven. Honey Cranberries may be served cold or re-heated in microwave oven. Also, Honey Cranberries may be frozen and thawed.
