French Toast with Cream Cheese and Jam

French toast with a twist - cream cheese and jam sandwiched between fried eggy bread. Leftovers don't get better than this!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 4 slices of bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp. butter for frying
  • 2 Tbsp. jam
  • 4 Tbsp. cream cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. icing sugar


  1. Heat frying pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Whisk egg and milk in a bowl.
  3. Spread two slices of bread thickly with half of the cream cheese. To one of these slices, spread half of the jam over the cream cheese. Top with the other slice of bread to make a sandwich.
  4. Melt half the butter in the pan.
  5. Dip one slice of sandwich in the egg mixture. Let it soak in for a few seconds, then gently flip the bread over and soak for a few more seconds, longer for thick-cut bread.
  6. Fry the egg-soaked sandwich in the pan for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden. You will need to be very gentle as you flip the sandwich; otherwise, it will slide apart.
  7. Add extra butter to the pan and repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  8. Cut in halves or quarters and dust with icing sugar if desired.


Light cream cheese works just as well with fewer calories.

Serve topped with your favourite berries. You can add extra berries by topping the jam with sliced strawberries or raspberries before cooking.
