Heat skillet or electric griddle to 325 to 350 degrees.
Cut French bread into 2 - 3 inch wide slices. Then, with a pairing knife, go back and cut halfway into each slice, in the center, creating a pocket that your fruit mixture can be stuffed into.
In a bowl, place the room temperature cream cheese and three tbsp of fruit spread of your choice. Combine well.
In a separate bowl, break 2 eggs; add cinnamon and milk and combine well. Now take fruit mixture and stuff into the pockets of your french bread slices. Place on a baking sheet.
When done stuffing each piece of bread, completely coat each piece in egg mixture. Make sure all sides are covered. Do all pieces before starting to fry.
Place the coated bread on the griddle and cook 3 - 6 minutes on each side or until they reach a nice golden brown. Make sure the cream cheese mixture heats through.
These are delicious without the butter and syrup. Delicious cold!
Instead of regular cream cheese, substitute flavored cream cheese like strawberry to go with fresh strawberry topping.
