DIRECTIONS

  • Thoroughly blend together the cream cheese, lemon zest and juice and the sugar.
  • Slice the bread about 3/4 inch thick.
  • Spread the cream cheese over half the bread slices, then top with the remaining bread slices.
  • Beat together in a small bowl, the eggs, half and half, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg.
  • Preheat a heavy griddle over medium heat.
  • Dip each stuffed bread slice in the batter, turning to coat well.
  • Remove bread from the egg mixture, letting the excess batter drip off.
  • Cook the bread on the hot griddle until browned and crisp, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Keep the cooked french toast warm in a 300 degree oven and continue cooking the remaining slices.
  • Serve hot with maple syrup or fresh berries.
