  • 2/3 cup part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 12 slices (about 3/4-inch-thick) firm, day-old French bread
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup COFFEE-MATE® Fat Free French Vanilla Flavor Liquid Coffee Creamer
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • maple syrup, warmed (optional)


COMBINE ricotta cheese and marmalade in small bowl; mix well. Spread mixture evenly over 6 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices to form sandwiches.

BEAT eggs in shallow pan or pie plate; whisk in Coffee-mate Fat Free French Vanilla Flavor Liquid, orange juice, flour and salt. Working 1 at a time, dip the sandwich in the egg mixture, letting it sit about 15 seconds per side. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining sandwiches.

HEAT large skillet over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Swirl half of the butter into hot skillet. Add half of the sandwiches; cook on each side for about 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining butter and sandwiches. Serve with maple syrup.
