Strawberry Stuffed French Toast


I made this yummy breakfast dish when my in-laws came to visit last month! Between the four of us, there was not a morsel left. My strawberry stuffed french toast is sweet, creamy, juicy, and oh-so-strawberrylicious. Top it with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and a few extra strawberries!

12-14 slices your favorite bread
12oz strawberry cream cheese
1.5 c sliced strawberries (fresh or frozen - slightly thawed)
5 large eggs
1.5c milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon + extra
4 tablespoons cold hard butter
Powdered Sugar

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Shmear strawberry cream cheese on a slice of bread, lay it flat - cream cheese side up - in the baking dish. Repeat until the bottom of the dish is covered. 
3. Sprinkle on the strawberries. Repeat step 2 but lay the bread cream cheese side down.
4. In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Whisk thoroughly. Pour mixture on top of bread in baking dish.
5. Dot the bread with small pieces of butter. Sprinkle tops of bread with cinnamon.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until bread is no longer soggy.
6. Enjoy a big steamy slice topped with powdered sugar and extra strawberries!
