The recipe takes a little longer to prepare than regular French toast, but I think it's worth it, especially on holiday mornings. The sweet apricot syrup complements the cream cheese filling. —Karen Leutz, Sylvania, Ohio

"My husband requests this for his breakfast every birthday and every Father's Day. It is very good. You can play around with the fruits in the filling and the syrup, but his favorite is the original."

"I used apple pie filling instead of pineapple and added cinnamon to the filling. I also warmed some of the pie filling for topping. My family loved and wants it every day!"

"I made this just as it was and it was the best french toast I've ever had- the orange juice and apricot preserves made a sweet yet tangy syrup instead of the just sweet maple."

"I just made this and it was pretty good, I substituted strawberry preserves and apple juice for the syrup and exchanged 1/2 tsp cinnamon for the ginger."
