- Serves 6.
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups half-and-half
- 12 slices French bread, thinly sliced
- 1 (8-oz. pkg.) cream cheese, softened
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 3 cups sliced peaches, drained, reserve liquid
- Confectioners’ sugar
Combine lightly beaten eggs with half-and-half and set aside. Place 6 slices French bread in a rectangular baking dish. Spread softened cream cheese on each slice of bread. Top with remaining slices of bread. Pour egg mixture over bread and refrigerate until liquid is completely absorbed. Remove French toast and carefully place each section on hot, buttered griddle, taking care not to tear sandwiches. Grill on both sides until golden brown.
Combine sugar, orange juice, and liquid from peaches; dissolve in pan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Add peaches. Top French toast with peaches and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
