Stuffed French Toast

This is easy to make but looks and tastes amazing.  We made it for General Conference morning this year to get us in the suitably food coma daze necessary for kids to sit and listen.  You can either make your own cream cheese mixture or I usually do the shortcut way.  We just keep a shaker full of cinnamon sugar mixture for our kid to make cinnamon toast with that I use.

Stuffed French Toast
1 loaf white sandwich bread
1 tub whipped white cream cheese
Cinnamon sugar sprinkle mixture in a shaker (1/4 c sugar with 1/2 tsp cinnamon and shake of nutmeg)
*Or you can mix 8 oz cream cheese with 1/4 c sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and shake of nutmeg till smooth)
Jam if desired

Make cream cheese sandwiches.  Spread one piece of bread with the cream cheese and shake on the cinnamon sugar.  (Or spread on the cream cheese mixture if you are doing it that way).  If you want on another piece of bread spread jam.  Then put the two pieces of bread together.  Keep making sandwiches till you use up all the bread.  I usually get 8 sandwiches.

Mix in a shallow bowl like a pie pan:
2 c milk
4 Tbsp melted butter
2 egg
4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 c flour
4 Tbsp sugar

Heat a skillet to medium heat.  Spray with oil.  Dip your sandwich in the batter till both sides are well coated, soak for a few seconds.
Lift sandwiches out of the batter and let any excess drip off for a moment.  Lay in skillet.  Cook till golden brown and then flip over, around 2 minutes per side. 
Serve with syrup and fruit.
