Stuffed French Toast--a family favorite!
Do you need a breakfast recipe to WOW your family or friends? This one is it! You can dress up this dish by cutting your French Toast into fun shapes (ex: Heart shaped for Valentines or Anniversaries, stars for 4th of July, etc.). This recipe sounds complicated, but it is easy and perfect for the spring!
Strawberry Stuffed French Toast
1 loaf of bread (white or wheat)
½ c. milk or heavy cream
2 T. sugar
1/8 t. nutmeg
1 T. vanilla
Beat egg mixture together and set aside.
1/4 c. strawberry jam
1 8oz. cream cheese
Beat together until smooth. Spread a generous amount of cream cheese filling on one side of a slice of bread. Put another bread slice on top of the cream cheese (like a sandwich). Dip top and bottom of your French toast in your egg mixture and cook on a greased hot skillet until cooked thoroughly on both sides. Take off the skillet and top with butter syrup (recipe below) and fresh strawberries and blueberries. Makes a GREAT Valentines breakfast or brunch!
