“This delicious, easy to make recipe is an adaptation to an original recipe found in "MOOSEWOOD RESTAURANT COOKS AT HOME" I bake it off to crisp up the outside and heat up the filling. BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERBAKE!”

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut a pocket in each slice of bread by using a serrated knife to cut to about a half inch of the sides& bottom of each slice.
  3. Mix together the fruit spread& cheese& fill pockets with a tbsp of the fruit/cheese mixture each.
  4. Mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon& nutmeg together in a bowl or baking pan large enough to hold all the slices in a single layer.

  6. Heat a large fry pan on med/low heat and add 1 tsp each of the butter& oil.
  7. Cook the bread two at a time for approx. 5-7 minutes; turn the slices a number of times until both sides are evenly browned.
