One of my favorite Sunday mornings is stuffed cherry vanilla french toast.

A great Sunday morning breakfast. 

Take 1, 8oz. tub of whipped cream cheese and 1/2 jar of Seeds from the Earth's Cherry Vanilla or Triple-berry jam and blend well. 

Spread mixture between 2 pieces of French toast and place back into pan to warm everything. Sprinkle will powdered sugar and yum. 

A scoop of vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream goes well with this too.
