A few weeks ago I picked up the Peach Amaretto Pecan whipped honey in Georgetown, CO at Kneisel & Anderson. Honeyville is a Colorado product and my previous purchase, Maple Hazelnut, was very tasty. I'm not really a breakfast toast person. I knew I wouldn't be spreading honey on bread daily. So it's a little of an impulse buy. My solution? Create a honey cream cheese filling and enjoy a lazy Saturday French Toastwich.
My goal was to use up a partial loaf of french bread, so I sliced the bread, and then sliced the slices in half to make somewhat even sized pieces of french toast that could be put together sandwich style. I don't have a particular recipe or technique for french toast. I whisked 2 eggs, 1/3-1/2 cup skim milk, a splash of vanilla, and some orange zest.
My filling was 2 oz of reduced fat cream cheese and 1/4 cup of the Peach Amaretto Pecan honey mixed together.
I dipped my little sandwich slices into the egg mixture and then cooked them on my non-stick griddle. When they were almost done, I spooned some filling on top of one piece of toast and put the other piece on top, while on the griddle I pressed down with the spatula, let it cook a little more and flipped it over one more time.
They were small little hand-held french toastwiches filled with awesome.
Have a great weekend!
