Stuffed French Toast - Instructions

Cut a pocket into one side of each slice of bread, leaving the other sides of the
bread intact. In each pocket, spoon 2 heaping teaspoons of preserves and 2 teaspoons
of ricotta. Press the bread back together to encase the filling. Set aside.

Preheat an electric skillet to 350 F, according to manufacturer's instructions.

In a shallow, medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar,
vanilla, salt and orange zest until combined. Dip each bread slice into the custard
and turn over to thoroughly soak each side. Remove from the custard and let the excess
drip back into the bowl. Place bread slices on a plate and set aside. Repeat with the
remaining slices.

Brush the surface of the electric skillet with softened butter. Arrange the soaked
