Stuffed French Toast with Apricot Syrup

 Stuffed French Toast with Apricot Syrup
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
