1 (8oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans (optional)
1 loaf white bread or French bread
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Beat the cream cheese and vanilla together until fluffy. Stir in nuts. Spread about 1/2 Tablespoon of the mixture on a slice of bread. Top with second piece of bread (like a sandwich). Repeat this process 10-12 times until mixture is all used.
Beat together the eggs, whipping cream, vanilla and nutmeg. Dip the "sandwiches" into the egg mixture. Cook on a lightly greased griddle until golden brown, turn to cook the other side.
(I like to top these with strawberries and syrup).
