Cream Cheese and Strawberry Stuffed French Toast


Nothing can set the mood for a great day off better than a delicious breakfast.  This morning I decided to make stuffed french toast.  I added a layer of fresh strawberries to lighten things up a bit (and to make a dent in the 5 lb supply I impulsively bought this week).  This recipe comes together in a snap but has enough sophistication to be a great choice for Mother's Day brunch.  The filling is sweet enough that no syrup is necessary, but a sprinkle of powdered sugar really sets the whole thing off. 

You'll Need:

8 slices of bread (I used homemade white sandwich bread)
Butter

Cream Cheese Filling
6 oz. cream cheese
2 Tb. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Strawberry Filling
1 cup strawberries
1 tsp. sugar

Batter
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Getting Started:

Hull and slice strawberries and toss with 1 tsp. sugar in a small bowl.  Let sit at least 5 minutes.

Mix together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Mix together egg, milk, flour, sugar, and vanilla in a shallow dish (I used a pie plate).

Now You're Cookin':

Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over 4 slices of bread.

Put a single layer of strawberries over the cream cheese mixture.


Top each sandwich half with another slice of bread.

Preheat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add 2 Tb. butter to melt.

Dip two sandwiches on both sides in the egg mixture.

When pan is ready cook sandwiches on each side for about 2-3 minutes.  They should be golden brown and slightly crisp.

Add more butter to the pan.  Dip and cook the remaining two sandwiches.

Serve with a little powdered sugar or syrup.

  7. I was a little concerned about this recipe after reading the other reviews, but it was great! It is very easy, I did add an extra tablespoon of strawberry preserves which made it sweet enough for us. I didn't have orange liqueur, so I used orange extract it worked just fine. The strawberry sauce was good, although it taste a little like a smoothie.

  8. This recipe was very sweet and delicious. We found that the liqueur was a bit strong and have cut it out. Also good with cherries substituted for strawberries

  16. I know the toast is stuffed with cream cheese and strawberries. Is it good for breakfast? If so, can I have the recipe for that along with some amazing breakfast ideas? I enjoy having scrambled eggs but getting a little tired of making them so I am just hoping that anyone can come up with amazing breakfast recipes! Thank you very much!

  21. This works great, but don't use frozen strawberries! They contain more water & will make cream cheese runny! Will try dehydrated berries next time!
