Directions for: Grilled Stuffed Blueberry Marscapone French Toast


1 loaf Brioche bread

½ cup cream cheese, at room temperature

½ cup marscapone cheese cold

3 Tbsp confectioners’ sugar

Zest of 2 lemons

¾ cup blueberries

1 tsp vanilla extract

Pinch of kosher salt

1. Slice bread ½ inch thickness 12 slices.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, mascarpone, the confectioners’ sugar, and the lemon zest.

5. Whisk together the eggs, half and half, vanilla, a grating of nutmeg, and a pinch of salt.

9. Transfer French toast to a platter, brush with melted butter. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve.
