  • For the Stuffed French Toast, mix cream cheese, brown sugar and nutmeg in small bowl until well blended. Spread 2 tablespoons of cream cheese mixture on each of 8 slices of bread. Top each with second bread slice to form 8 sandwiches.

  • Beat eggs with wire whisk in 13x9-inch baking dish. Stir in milk, vanilla and rum flavor until well blended. Dip sandwiches in egg mixture, soaking for 2 minutes on each side.

  • Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in large nonstick skillet or griddle on medium-low heat. Place 4 of the sandwiches in skillet. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining sandwiches, melting remaining tablespoon butter in skillet.

  • Meanwhile, for the Spiced Syrup, mix pancake syrup, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice in microwavable bowl or measuring cup. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until warm, stirring once. Serve with French toast.
