Use your favorite jam for this fun twist on traditional French toast. SAM

3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup fruit jam
16 slices thin-sliced bread
8 teaspoons softened butter, plus extra for serving
Confectioners’ sugar
Maple syrup, hot

In a shallow mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and half-and-half and pour into a 9- by 13-inch baking pan. Make 8 butter-and-jam sandwiches and place them in the egg batter, turning twice to coat all sides. Lightly grease a griddle or skillet and heat to medium-high. Fry the sandwiches about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and serve with extra butter and hot maple syrup.
Makes 8 servings.
