If you are feeling like your French Toast needs a little something something, you can add 1/2 cup of Gorgonzola to the Ginger Pear Mascarpone filling. Now, you may be asking yourself, "Gorgonzola in French Toast? Who did they let loose in the kitchen?" *CoughBritCough* ... trust us though, it is truly amazing. With that being said, we also feel we need to warn you. Be careful not to add TOO much Gorgonzola! This cheese can become very prominent and can overpower the other flavors.
