French Toast with Maple Mascarpone

Cathy Jacobsen


I love ... I mean REALLY love this breakfast. It is decadent. It looks very special but so easy to put together. It is a great for guests or for any occasion. It is versatile too. Use a different kind of bread, or any fruit or jam that you like. Either way it is very impressive looking and tastes every bit as good as it looks. Mascarpone is very rich yet surprisingly very low in fat. I like to serve this with turkey sausage for a out of this world breakfast.
