  • 1
    Spray 13x9-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cut almost through each bread slice, cutting from top crust to--but not through--bottom crust. In small bowl, stir together cream cheese, 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons marmalade and the cranberries. Open bread slices enough to spread 1 heaping tablespoon cheese mixture evenly on 1 cut surface of each slice. Press bread slices together. Place in baking dish.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, 1/4 cup sugar and the salt with wire whisk until well blended. Pour over bread; turn slices carefully to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 425°F. Drizzle melted butter over bread. Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

    Meanwhile, drain juice from raspberries into 1-cup glass measuring cup; add enough water to measure 3/4 cup. In 1-quart saucepan, stir together juice mixture, cornstarch, 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons marmalade. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally; remove from heat. Cool 15 minutes. Stir in raspberries. Serve sauce with French toast.

Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Arrange the bread slices so they fit in a single layer in the pan. Once you pour the milk mixture over them, they’ll be more flexible.
  • Quickly thaw raspberries by removing the lid of the package and microwaving on High 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes, stirring once.
  • Enjoy with bacon and/or sausage links and fresh fruit.
  • Assemble the French toast the night before. Prepare the sauce and put it in a microwavable serving dish; cover and refrigerate. Warm the sauce by microwaving on High 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes.
