This delicious recipe for Key Lime Pie French Toast pairs perfectly with the Milano Cellars 2016 Moscato.
Our Milano Cellars 2016 California Moscato displays the fragrances of citrus and tropical fruits such as lime, lemon, banana and lychee. The finish builds with dry characters of apricot, fig and hay. Muscats are notorious for bringing layer upon layer of tropical flavors during bottle ageing. This medium-bodied wine has a mild attack flavored with orange and lemon. This wine is off-dry, with some mineral qualities and a fleshy mid-palate. Read New Wines Added to La Famiglia on The WineShop Experience.
Key Lime Pie French Toast
- 1 pkg cream cheese (whipped)
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar (packed)

- 2 graham crackers (crumbled)
- 5 eggs
- 1 C milk

Mix cream cheese, brown sugar and lime extract in small bowl until well blended. Spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture on each of 4 slices of bread. Sprinkle crumbled graham crackers on top of the cream cheese mixture. Press the other 4 slices of bread on top to form 4 sandwiches.
Beat eggs with wire whisk in 13×9-inch baking dish. Stir in milk, cinnamon and vanilla until well blended. Dip sandwiches in egg mixture, soaking for 2 minutes on each side.
Melt butter in large nonstick skillet or griddle on medium-low heat. Place sandwiches in skillet. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown. Serve with maple syrup or sprinkle with additional graham cracker crumbs and confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
