Ingredients

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
4 fresh figs
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

Directions

  1. Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and ground cinnamon in a bowl.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

Tips

  1. Cubes of Brioche or panettone can be used instead of foccacia or raisin bread.

  2. Hold the completed French toast cubes in a warm oven for up to 30 minutes before garnishing and serving.

  3. Freeze any leftover scraps of bread to use for bread-pudding or stuffing.

  4. Customize this recipe by garnishing with fresh fruits that are in season.
