Jalapeno Fig Stuffed French Toast

Servings: 6

Ingredients
6 Slices of Rustic Italian Bread sliced about 1 1/2 inch thick
6 oz Mascarpone, softened
1 Jar Bellisari's Blistered Jalapeno & Fig Spread
8 Large Eggs
1 Cup Whole Milk
1 Cup Half-and-Half
2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
1 Tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract
¼ Tsp Kosher Salt
Canola Oil Cooking Spray

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

With your paring knife, make a slit to form a pocket in the breads slices, being extra careful not to cut all the way through.

For each individual serving, use a mixture of 2 tablespoons of Bellisari's Blistered Jalapeno & Fig Spread along with 2 tablespoons of mascarpone cheese. Carefully spread inside the pocket of each slice.

Combine the eggs, milk, half and half, vanilla and salt to make your dipping mixture.

Spray skillet with cooking spray and gently lay each piece unto the skillet. Brown each side for 3 minutes. Remove stovetop and place in oven for 8 minutes. Heat remaining fig spread over low heat and remove. Place slices of French toast on serving tray and spoon remaining Bellisari's Blistered Jalapeno & Fig Spread on each slice.
