I made this for breakfast yesterday morning using homemade peach preserves, and it was REALLY good - and really easy! I like how the two layers of bread prevent the bread from getting waterlogged and thin like they do when I make normal French toast with sandwich bread. In fact, I like this recipe and the general idea behind it so much that I am planning to try this with pancake syrup in the middle sometime instead of preserves. I do believe this could be the answer to all my French toast-making woes. Thank you! UPDATE: I made this today using regular pancake syrup instead of preserves, and it worked pretty well. The syrup seemed to thicken a little and kind of reminded me of a soft pecan pie filling. There was no need to put syrup or sugar on the outside. It made for a much less messy version of French toast.
Delicious! And so easy to put together & cook, too! I used sugar free strawberry preserves, Sara Lee's white whole wheat bread & added some cinn to the egg mix (skipped the salt). I cut the sandwich into half rather than thirds-easier to flip over! Served with some sugar free maple syrup. Thanks for sharing!
