2/3 cup part skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cup orange marmalade
12 slices (about 3/4-inch-thick) firm, day-old French bread
3 large eggs
1/2 cup Fat Free French Vanilla Flavor NESTLÉ COFFEE-MATE Liquid Coffee Creamer
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
maple syrup, warmed (optional)
- Combine ricotta cheese and marmalade in small bowl; mix well. Spread mixture evenly over 6 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices to form sandwiches.
- Beat eggs in shallow pan or pie plate; whisk in Coffee-mate, orange juice, flour and salt. Working 1 at a time, dip the sandwich in the egg mixture, letting it sit about 15 seconds per side. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining sandwiches.
- Heat large skillet over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Swirl half of the butter into hot skillet. Add half of the sandwiches; cook on each side for about 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining butter and sandwiches. Serve with maple syrup.
