I bet you could put some cream cheese (ooh lovely thoughts about some cinnamon raisin walnut cream cheese) and the fruit preserves, like a stuffed french toast... delish!!!

Are you trying to tell me that there's a whole cookbook out there devoted to toast?!?!

NuggetMaven-
Ooh, that is a good idea. Cream cheese makes everything better (bagels, cakes, salsa dip...), perhaps even a fruit chutney of some sort.

I've actually used peach, apple and/or lemon preserves in these and they are good too!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting! :)

Cheryl-
Oh, totally. And this isn't the only one I have! They normally came with your toaster when you bought it. Toasters were the MP3 players of the 40's and 50's. It wasn't uncommon to see one on tables at both homes and restaurants. much like salt & pepper is today. America loves its toast!
