Cream Cheese French Toast with Smoked Salmon

The recipe below gives measures but it depends of course on the size and type of bread you are using. I had a round 23cms/9inch diameter roll so the 2 eggs covered 1.5 sandwiches which gave 1.5 servings but of course if you use a smaller loaf you may be able to get 3 or 4 sandwiches out of it. I served it to hubby for a lazy weekend brunch and he loved it. Adored it. In fact he asked for it for dinner too.

As for me, there was one clear partner to this- Smoked Salmon. It's a natural partner for cream cheese. I've given Margaret Raimo's original recipe as well as written it out, with a couple of hints. Just make sure that you have enough ingredients for the inevitable dinner requests later that day.
