    We have been looking for this recipe for years!

    Love French toast, but this recipe is a delight! The riccota tastes delicious as a filling:I ommited the strawberry preserves and added fresh grated nutmeg and orange zest instead, then served them with fresh,sweetened sliced strawberries. great for a special weekend Breakfast or Brunch... I'll be preparing this for guests!

    Stuffed french toast with fresh berry topping

    SUSAN MENKE from FORT MADISON, IA

    This was just the ticket to get my son to eat French Toast. I have made it the traditional way, dipped in egg with butter and syrup. He would not touch the stuff. He claimed he did not like bread, but eats sandwiches all the time. Well, I made this, told him just give me a chance and try it. He loves it and now ask's for it. yeah!
