slices of bread
cream cheese, softened
In medium bowl, beat eggs and milk together. Add the dash of salt and nutmeg, mix ? Set bowl aside.
Taking two slices of bread, spread cream cheese on one side. Taking the second two slices of remaining bread spread the raspberry preserves on one side. Form 2 sandwiches - one slice of cream cheese with one slice of preserves.
On medium to high flame, melt butter in frying pan. Take one sandwich; dip the sandwich into the milk/egg mixture. Place in frying pan. Cook sandwich on both sides until golden brown. Remove from pan placing sandwich on paper towel to absorb any excess fat from butter. Repeat with second sandwich.
Serve both sandwiches cut into triangles with fresh fruit on side. Sprinkle entire plate with powdered sugar, or drizzle maple syrup on top (as seen in photo).
