Punalu'u French Toast with Liliko Cream Cheese


Serves 6
Serving Size: 3 halves
Preheat griddle: 300`

12 slices sweetbread

1 ½ cup cream cheese
¼ fresh lilikoi (passion fruit) pulp or frozen juice concentrate
Honey to taste

4 eggs
¾ cup milk
¾ tsp cinnamon

Slice sweetbread ¼ inch thick, allowing 3 slices per person. Set aside. Blend cream cheese, lilikoi and honey well. You should have a thick consistency. Spread evenly on bread slices creating sandwiches. Slice diagonally. Dip sandwich halves completely yet quickly in batter (sweetbread absorbs very fast). Place on griddle. Lightly brown all sides. Sprinkle lightly with Powder Sugar.
Serve with warmed syrups.
