On the days we have more time, breakfast is one of our favorite meals. One of my most requested new recipes is this little beauty. It's not difficult or terribly time consuming, but it's delicious!

Strawberry Stuffed French Toast
serves 4-6

8 oz. low-fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Fresh strawberries, washed and sliced
1/2 to 3/4 loaf bakery style loaf bread
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
Powdered sugar

In a small bowl, mash cream cheese with a fork. Add sugar and vanilla; blend well. Slice bread into 2-inch slices. Cut slices in half, but not all the way through. Smear a nice amount of cream cheese mixture in the center of each slice. Place quite a few strawberry slices in on top of the cream cheese. Press together. Mix eggs and milk until well blended. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of butter and allow to melt. Dip each side of 4 pieces of toast in egg mixture. Place in hot skillet. Allow to cook a few minutes; until the toast lifts easily and the underside is nicely browned. Flip toast to cook on the other side. When done, remove to an oven-safe plate and keep warm in slow oven. Cook remaining pieces of toast.
Spoon remaining strawberries over toast then dust with powdered sugar.

Amanda, this looks SO good. I think I'm glad I don't think of making french toast at home. :-)

Hi Amanda - Happy New Year! Your french toast looks wonderful! Berry stuffed french toast (fresh or frozen) is a well-loved special breakfast at our house, too.
