DIRECTIONS

  • Cut 1" from each end of the loaf and discard or use for another recipe.
  • Cut the loaf into 1" thick slices and halve each slice on the diagonal.
  • Cut in the diagonal side of each piece of bread to form a pocket (this is almost like cutting the bread into 1/2" slices except you don't go through any of the other sides of the bread).
  • Mix the cream cheese, 2 tbsp sugar, egg yolk, zest and 1 tbsp orange juice until smooth.
  • Fill each bread pocket with 1 tbsp of the cream cheese mixture.
  • Put bread slices in a 13" x 9" baking dish, overlapping slightly.
  • Whisk the eggs, milk and 1 tsp vanilla until frothy and pour over the bread.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Sprinkle bread with 1 tbsp sugar.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cranberry Sauce: Combine cranberries, maple syrup, 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 c orange juice and 1 tsp vanilla in a pot.
  • Cook over medium heat stirring as required until cranberries burst and mixture thickens, about 15 minutes.
  • Cool sauce and serve with toast.
