How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a charcoal grill to medium-high (450°) or set up a camp stove and use medium heat.

Step 2

Whisk egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla together in a large bowl.

Step 3

Stir mascarpone, remaining 1 tsp. vanilla, and the liqueur together in another bowl. Spread mascarpone mixture over 4 bread slices; top with remaining slices.

Step 4

Cook maple syrup and berries in a small covered saucepan until berries start to break down, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Step 5

Heat a large heavy frying pan or 2 smaller ones; swirl butter in pan(s). Dip sandwiches in egg mixture, then cook, turning once, until crisp and browned, 4 to 8 minutes total. Serve French toast with syrup and bacon.

This was so delicious. i had a hard time locating blackberry liqueur, so I made it without it. It turned out great!

Recipe says 2 teaspoons cinnamon. I cut mine down to 1/8 teaspoon. I like cinnamon, but not that much. Used the first 5 ingredients in the recipe (egg thru 1/2 tsp. vanilla) to fry the french toast on the griddle. Very good! :)
