Hot-off-the-griddle French toast is sandwiched around a rich, orange and cream cheese filling.

Ingredients

5
oz cream cheese, softened
1/4
cup orange marmalade
16
diagonally cut slices (1/2 inch thick) French bread
1
cup Original Bisquick™ mix
2/3
cup milk
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
1
egg
1
tablespoon powdered sugar
Maple-flavored syrup, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In small bowl, mix cream cheese and marmalade until blended. Spread 8 slices of the bread with cream cheese mixture. Top each with 1 of the remaining bread slices, making 8 sandwiches.
  • 2 In shallow dish or pie pan, stir Bisquick mix, milk, cinnamon, orange peel, vanilla and egg with whisk or fork until blended.
  • 3 Heat nonstick griddle to 350°F or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Dip each sandwich into batter mixture, turning to coat both sides; drain excess batter in dish. Cook on hot griddle or skillet 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Sprinkle each sandwich with powdered sugar; serve with syrup.
