Strawberry Stuffed French Toast

Waking up with a plan for breakfast is always a good thing.  Strawberry and Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast has got to be a good plan for the day!  My husband got me a new camera for my birthday, so of course I took pictures.  If you have the time to make these- it is a move you won’t regret!

I found this recipe at Tasty Kitchen around Mother’s Day.  I loved the presentation of it.  Mine did not look as delicious as the one on the site, but it sure did taste good.  It had a few more steps than I usually have for breakfast it was well worth the effort to make.  The family loved them.

Strawberry and Cream Cheese Stuffed Toast Adapted from Tasty Kitchen

  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup strawberry preserves
  • 2 packages fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 loaf of french bread, cut into 2 inch slices
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • butter
  • Powdered sugar, to dust

Preparation:

  1. Cream softened cream cheese with Strawberry preserves until smooth with a fork.  Cut up about 12 medium sized strawberries into a small dice and stir into the cream cheese mixture.
  2. Slice the remaining strawberries in slices and then cut them with a quarter turn so they are little “sticks” and add 1/2 cup sugar to let the juices come out.
  3. Slice the french bread into 2 inch slices and then slice just the top of them in half (do not slice all the way through!).  Use your clean fingers to pry the bread apart, forming a little pocket, so you can stuff them with about 2 Tbsp of cream cheese mixture.
  4. Preheat a non stick skillet over medium heat.
  5. Beat the eggs with milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon for the french toast egg dip.
  6. Add butter to the heated skillet and move the butter around so it melts evenly to coat the bottom of the pan.
  7. Dip the stuffed french toast in the egg mixture and then add to the fry pan.
  8. Let them turn golden brown and turn to toast the other side.
  9. Place on a platter and dust with powdered sugar.
  10. To serve, top the french toast with the strawberries (and sugar) mixture.  Enjoy!
