I made this last week for my sons furlow visit, and it was absolutely devine. So, I decided to make it again for Christmas, since my brother will be doing the Christmas dinner. This time though I thought maybe instead of the raspberry sauce I may do a banana nut foster sauce and use Splenda to replace all or most of the sugars. This recipe is great because it's not only delish originally, but very versatile.

Made this today for my son and his wife's birthday brunch (yes, they do have the same birthday!) and it was a big hit!! Everyone LOVED it! I could not find French bread this time so I got a cinnamon swirl loaf that was pre-cut, so two separate slices made for one "pocket" and it worked just fine. Cream cheese filling was amazingly tasty and so was the raspberry sauce - I think that orange marmalade makes a big difference!

Very good, but also very easy to reduce the fat and sugar. Use 2 cups egg substitute instead of eggs, substitute fat free half and half for milk, and use reduced fat cream cheese, reduced sugar marmalade and splenda instead of sugar.

This was good, I don't think I cooked it long enough cause the middle wasn't done and doughy but it was getting to dark to cook longer.

I made this for a mother's day brunch for my mom and friends- everyone loved it! I used heavy cream instead of milk and it was a good move- the bread did not get soggy and it browned beautifully. It does have a lot of ingredients, but is well worth it for special occasions!
