Fruit Filled French Toast

Chef.Foodie's picture
  Italian bread slice/French / challah bread 4 (About 4 Inches In Diameter)
  Fruit spread 4 Tablespoon
  Eggs 2 Large, lightly beaten
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Pure vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Cinnamon 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Butter 2 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 2 Teaspoon

With a sharp serrated knife, cut lengthwise through each slice of bread to within 1/2 inch of the bottom and side crusts to make a pocket.
Using a butter knife, fill each pocket with a generous tablespoon of fruit spread.
In a shallow bowl that is large enough to hold the four bread slices in one layer, mix together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.
Soak the bread slices for 2 or 3 minutes, turning them over once.
Warm a large skillet on medium-low heat.
Coat the bottom of the skillet with 1 teaspoon each of the butter and oil.
Cook two slices of bread at a time for about 6 minutes, turning the slices over several times, until both sides are nicely browned and crisp.
Add the remaining teaspoon of butter and oil to the skillet and cook the final two slices of bread.
Serve hot, either plain or topped with yogurt.
