Oh, for heaven's sake! Here's how you make stuffed French toast, if you want the real thing. It's so easy and delicious.!

1) Make a cream cheese and jelly sandwich. Any flavor of jelly or jam; orange marmalade works well, too. Use a good amount of cream cheese, but not too much -- I'd say at least an ounce, an ounce-and-a-half. You can cut the crusts off if you want, but if you keep them the bread retains its shape better.

2) Mix up your favorite French toast batter (mine: eggs, half-n-half, fresh grated nutmeg, cinnamon)

3) Heat the pan, spray with no-stick spray, melt about a teaspoon of butter for flavor (swirl that around)

4) stack up the sandwiches next to the dish with the batter, have both by the stove; have a plate ready for the cooked ones.

5) plop a sandwich into the batter, let it sit for about 5-10 seconds, then flip it over and let it sit for 5-10 seconds -- this really depends on the kind of bread you use; we use whole wheat and it's slower on the uptake than white bread.

6) carefully lift the sandwich out of the batter and let the excess drip off, then place it in the fry pan; repeat with however many sandwiches will fit in your pan. (My biggest frying pan holds 3.)

7) Cook till brown on the bottom (medium heat -- 3-4 minutes? I have no idea, I do this all as I go -- ) then flip and cook till the other side is done.

8) Remove to warming plate; cover.

9) When ready to serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with more jam/jelly/marmalade, and maple syrup is nice, too. You can also make a fantastic compound butter with the j/j/m as a spread -- just mix softened butter 2 to 1 with the j/j/m. Fresh fruit is also nice.

All that said, perhaps the casserole would be better for a potluck kind of thing! Good luck!

Yours definitely sounds like the way to go if I made it for us at home. I was already a little "out of the box" because every other dish brought, without exception, is the traditional egg bake.

It didn't get done in the hour it was supposed to bake. (I think they meant a small loaf of white bread.) So we had to throw it in the oven when we got it to church. Next time I'd choose a different recipe.
