Stuffed French Toast with Strawberries
Tomorrow for breakfast try this recipe for yummy Strawberry Stuffed French Toast.
8 slices white or wheat bread, cut 1 inch thick
8 ounces cream cheese
6 tablespoons strawberry preserves
1-1/3 cups milk
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
4 cups sliced strawberries
1. Cut each bread slice in half crosswise. With a sharp knife cut a horizontal slit in each half slice to make a pocket. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and preserves. Spread 1/16 (approximately) of the mixture inside each bread pocket.
2. Pinch edges of bread together to hold filling.
3. In a shallow bowl, whisk together milk, egg, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Dip filled bread slices in egg mixture to coat. Cook about 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.
4. Top with strawberries and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Brunch ideas: Serve these with scrambled eggs (add some chopped chives for a nice touch), and your choice of breakfast meat.
