Come with me, mon ami, and we shall voyage en France.
We will walk le reus,
and wear les bérets rouges,
and eat la cuisine.
Some Stuffed Cinnamon French Toast Rolls.
Mmmhmmm. Oui, oui.
But to read any further, you must read in your finest French accent, as though Lumiere himself were reading it to you.
Oui! That is better!
Good. Now, we begin by slicing the French bread,
and removing the crusts.
Set those aside, it's time to make the filling.
Mix together 1 egg yolk, 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, and 1/2 cup sugar. Blend thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Stir together until evenly mixed.
Spread cream cheese mixture on
melt 4-5 tablespoons of butter.
Now it's time to get your fingers messy!
Brush a roll with butter,
and place on aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining rolls.
At this point you can cover them and freeze them for later, refrigerate them to be baked the next day, or use immediately. This is a wonderful prepare-ahead meal.
Bake in preheated 400°F oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
While it is baking, think on the fact that this was
Joan of Arc's favorite meal.
Well, I think so, anyway.
The details are a little sketchy.
I hope you have enjoyed our excursion à la France.
