Ready In:




  • In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar; mix well then stir in the preserves.
  • Spread equally over 4 bread slices. Top with the remaining bread slices, forming sandwiches.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs, half-and-half, and granulated sugar until well combined.
  • In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat.
  • Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture, completely coating both sides. Cook 2 sandwiches at a time for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until golden.
  • Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the skillet and cook the remaining 2 sandwiches.
  • Slice each in half diagonally and serve.

  1. Just made this this morning as an alternative to our normal English-French toast (which is basically just egg) with syrup. It's nice, and made a pleasant change, but it's quite cloying. I think it might work better with fresh strawberries to cut through the creaminess.
  2. Good for when company comes
  3. This is an incredible recipe! I make this for my hubby on weekends :-). Even managed to lighten i up a bit! I used 2 heaping tbsp of fat free cream cheese, 1 tbsp sugar free preserves & didn't use any sugar. I spread it on the bread (used whole wheat) & didn't use any more sugar in the egg mix--just added vanilla & a bit of cinnamon. This is wonderful with a strawberry &/or banana syrup. fat free whipped cream makes it look very decadent. thanks so much for sharing!
  4. This was pretty tasty. I mixed raspberry preserves with the cream cheese and only added about 1-2 TBSP of confectioners sugar to the mix. My 2 and 4 year old really liked this for breakfast this morning. I only gave it 4 star because I wish the outside was crispier. But will make this again! Thanks for the recipe!
  5. I was in the grocery store and saw chocolate cream cheese with the sugar already added, so I decided to use that in this recipe. I served this with fresh strawberries. This is an easy recipe to make. Thanks for the recipe.


  1. Yummy is an understatement...this french toast was sooooooo delicious. I used seedless raspberry jam in place of the strawberry preserves. The sweetened creaminess of the cream cheese really makes this dish. I melted some of the raspberry jam in the microwave and poured it over the french toast and added a touch of whipped cream. I was in breakfast heaven. :) Thanks for another great recipe, V! Made for PAC Fall, 2009. Update: This recipe is in my Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook.
  2. This is really good...very rich and very filling. I used fresh strawberries that sat overnight in the fridge covered in sugar for the filling instead of the strawberry preserves and confectioner's sugar that you have in the recipe. Then with the strawberries I had left over, I made my own strawberry syrup by putting it on top of the stove and thickening it with cornstarch. I poured this over the french toast......IT WAS AMAZING.
  3. This was very good. I Used sliced french bread instead of white bread, and next time I am going to try and turn into a casserole brunch dish. Thank you for this great recipe loonetunesfan. I loved it, (even though I gained ten pounds by just smelling it-lol)
