Spread about 1 1/2 tablespoon of the mixture on a slice of bread. Top with

a second piece of bread (like a sandwich). Repeat this process 10-12 times

until the mixture is all used.

Beat together the eggs, whipping cream, vanilla and nutmeg. Dip the

"sandwiches" into the egg mixture. Cook on a lightly greased griddle until

golden brown, turn to cook the other side. Keep the cooked "sandwiches"

warm by placing them on a baking sheet in a warm oven.

Meanwhile, heat together the preserves and orange juice. To serve, dust the

Stuffed French Toast with powdered sugar and drizzle the warm sauce

To cook

Press the sandwich together and dip in the egg mixture. Put it on the hot griddle carefully and cook until edges start to brown. Turn with spatula and cook on other side until brown (about 1 minute).

Make all the French toast and arrange the portions shingled on a platter with orange slices and fresh strawberries. Before serving lightly dust with powdered sugar. . I hope you like these delicious Stuffed French Toast dishes as much as we do here at home God Bless you all and.....
