|1 tbsp / 15 ml||unsalted butter, divided|
|1 tbsp / 15 ml||vegetable oil, divided|
|24||cubes of sweet artisan-style bread, such as cranberry focaccia or raisin bread (1-inch / 2.5 cm)|
|2||Naturegg Omega 3 Eggs|
|1/2 cup / 125 ml||spreadable soft cheese such as cream cheese, mascarpone, goat or blue cheese|
|2/3 cup / 150 ml||1 or 2% milk|
|1 tsp / 5 ml||vanilla extract|
|1/4 tsp / 1 ml||ground cinnamon|
Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and ground cinnamon in a bowl.
Heat half of the butter and oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Working in batches, dip cubes of bread in the egg mixture for about 15 seconds; transfer to the skillet and cook, for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown all over. Repeat with the remaining butter, oil, bread and eggs.
Cut each fig into 6 wedges. Spread 1 tsp (5 mL) spreadable cheese onto each French toast cube. Top with a fig and secure with a decorative toothpick. Serve warm.
Cubes of Brioche or panettone can be used instead of foccacia or raisin bread.
Hold the completed French toast cubes in a warm oven for up to 30 minutes before garnishing and serving.
Freeze any leftover scraps of bread to use for bread-pudding or stuffing.
Customize this recipe by garnishing with fresh fruits that are in season.
