DIRECTIONS

  • The night before, slice the baguette into 1 to 1 1/2-inch thick slices; you should get at least 12. Make a small slit on the bottom side of each slice to make a deep pocket for stuffing. you can do this when ready to cook, but it's best to let the bread sit out overnight.
  • Just before cooking, in a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, nuts, dried fruit if using, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Evenly divide the cream cheese mixture, using a spoon to stuff it in each pocket.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, half-and-half, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • When ready to cook, warm the oil and butter on a griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Dip the stuffed baguette slices in the egg mixture for a few seconds so it coats evenly. Don't let them soak too long or they will become mushy. Transfer to the griddle and cook on each side until browned.
  • Remove from the griddle and place on a serving plate. Garnish with a dusting of confectioners' sugar and sliced berries. Serve with your favorite syrup.
