Directions
1.
In small bowl, combine cream cheese and 2 tablespoons spreadable fruit. Using serrated knife, form pocket in each bread slice by making a horizontal cut halfway between top and bottom crust, slicing not quite all the way through. Fill each pocket with about 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture.
2.
In small bowl, combine egg whites, egg, milk, vanilla, and apple pie spice. Lightly coat nonstick griddle with cooking spray; heat over medium heat.
3.
Dip stuffed bread slices into egg mixture, coating both sides. Place bread slices on hot griddle. Cook about 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.
4.
Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup spreadable fruit until melted, stirring frequently. Serve over French toast. Makes 8 servings.
Tip
  • Test Kitchen Tip: To make ahead, stuff each bread slice, and place in an airtight container. Cover; refrigerate overnight. In the morning, prepare egg mixture and cook.
