Stuffed French Toast, YUMMO

On an old $40 Day episode with Rachael Ray, she visited Jack's Outback (which was quite comical- I will explain after the recipe posting) on Cape Cod and ordered the Stuffed French Toast. It looked absolutely delicious:

And here is the recipe:

2 1/2 pounds ricotta cheese
3/4 cup sugar
1 orange, zested
1 lemon, zested
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons margarine or butter
10 slices white bread

Blend the ricotta cheese, sugar, orange and lemon zest in a medium mixing bowl. Cover and set aside. Beat eggs and milk in a wide flat bowl. In a large saucepan or griddle, melt margarine on medium heat. Dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture briefly on each side. Place in saucepan and cook until browned on each side. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture onto 5 pieces of French toast and spread. Place remaining 5 pieces of toast on top of mixture.

When I stop feeling so lazy and am not so caught up with this school thing, I will make this for my family for breakfast, and I promise to post pictures.

Anyhow, Rachael decided to go to Jack's Outback because a few people recommended it to her, but told her the service was "miserable". You pretty much have to wait on yourself, but it looks well worth it- that Stuffed French Toast must be to die for! Can't wait to try it!

Ooh, that looks good! Leave it to the New Englanders to craft a brekkie so sweet and satisfying.

Can't wait to hear how it turns out!

Damn girl... You know I always use vanilla extract in the egg mixture, and then coat the bread in crushed almonds. *drooooool*
I need to try this one next. Maybe with berries?

Ooh Thanks for the idea, Garrett! I may just try that too!

Berries sound good with it, I'll be lucky if I can find any here, though, now that it's getting cold here!
