Sunday Brunch

                  All I can say is if you're partial to the odd bit of french toast then you should try this gorgeous twist but be warned you may find that you eat more than the odd bit.  I did a quick bit of research and got lost amongst the many variations and there country of origin some made me salivate and others (savoury, gherkins onions mayonnaise and tomato sauce) left me for dead, but they all had one thing in common a quick and economical way to use up stale bread.     Here's a link if you're a little curious about "french toast".

Cream Cheese and jam stuffed French Toast

 4 eggs
1 cup milk
4 fat slices (2 -3cm) stale bread
4 tbspn cream cheese
4 tbspns jam (I used nectarine )
cinnamon and sugar

 Cut a pocket into one side of the bread cut almost all the way through.  Into each pocket smear 1 tablespoon each of cream cheese and jam.  Beat eggs and milk together pour into a flat dish that is big enough for  the four slices of bread.  Lay the bread flat into the milk and turn over after five minutes (remember that you want the bread to soak up all of the egg mixture)  Heat the oil in a large non-stick fry-pan add butter.   Sprinkle the bread with cinnamon and sugar and fry until golden on both sides
