This is an elegant brunch or late breakfast dish on a lazy Sunday morning. Ideal for special occasions like Mother's day. It's delicious served with a dollop of marmalade on the top and a good cup of coffee.
This was delicious!! I made this for my family and everybody came back for seconds. I made a couple slight variations. Instead of making a slit in one slice, I just put some cream cheese between two slices of french bread. I figured that, that would be easier and it turned out great. Instead of using orange marmalade, I used frozen strawberries in sugar and a bit of powdered sugar. I have already been asked to make this again!! Definitely a crowd pleaser! - 31 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was delicious. I recommend spreading the cream cheese out, just for uniformity, and adding a spoonful of strawberry jam (microwaved, to make spreading easier). Also, the recipe called for vanilla, but I did not see it in the steps? I added it to the egg mixture, and that worked great. Thanks! - 04 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely wonderful! Be careful not to stuff too much cream cheese in there, but, this was absolutely excellent. And the marmalade was a nice touch, do try it even if you're skeptical. You'll need a bit more butter to cook them in....this one goes straight into the recipe box permanently! - 13 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
