French Toast With le Riopelle de l’Isle and Berries
125 ml (1/2 cup) le Riopelle de l’Isle
Zest and juice of one orange
30 ml (2 tbsp.) granulated sugar
8 slices of your choice of bread: raisin bread, nut bread, pannetone, sweet bread or other
125 ml (1/2 cup) raspberries
125 ml (1/2 cup) blackberries
125 ml (1/2 cup) blueberries
2 beaten eggs
250 ml (1 cup) milk
5 ml (1 tsp.) cinnamon
45 ml (3 tbsp.) unsalted Cows Creamery butter
60 ml (1/4 cup) icing sugar
In a bowl, mix cheese, orange juice and zest, and 15 ml (1 tbsp.) granulated sugar. Spread this mixture on both sides of each bread slice. Cover 4 slices with berries, pressing them down so they stick. Cover these with the other slices, coated on both sides with the cheese mixture, to form sandwiches. Set aside.
In another bowl, beat the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and the rest of the granulated sugar. Dip the sandwiches into this mixture, coating both sides.
In a large frying pan, heat the butter and then brown the sandwiches for about 2 minutes on each side.
Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve hot.
