Expert Tips

If you prefer, you can use brioche or sliced bread. You can also use guava paste.

Directions

  • 1 Combine the cream cheese and whipped cream in a mixer. Place in the refrigerator to keep cool while you prepare the toast.
  • 2 Cut the bread into slices approximately 1 inch wide and set aside.
  • 3 Beat the eggs. Add the milk and vanilla, and continue beating.
  • 4 Heat up a large pan and add 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • 5 Dip each one of the slices in the milk and egg mix. Place each of the slices in the pan and cook until golden brown on both sides, approximately 1 minute per side.
  • 6 Remove from the pan, and place on a tray or serving dish. Spread with 1 teaspoon of the guava jelly, then top it off with 1 tablespoon of the whipped cream and cream cheese. Sprinkle with cinnamon or brown sugar, if desired.
