  • 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups stemmed, hulled, and diced strawberries
  • French Toast
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter or oil, for frying
  • Strawberry jam or warm maple syrup, for serving

Cut bread loaf into thick slices. Cut a thick incision down middle of each slice of bread, but don’t go all the way through to the bottom or to each side.

In a bowl, combine cream cheese and berry syrup. Divide cream cheese evenly into each piece of bread, stuffing into middle.

Preheat a griddle or nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Spray with nonstick spray.

In a shallow dish, combine eggs and milk. Dip each slice of bread into egg mixture and let soak for a few seconds. Repeat on both sides of bread and with all slices of bread.

Place onto preheated griddle or pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side of the bread. Flip over and cook on both sides.

Remove from griddle and serve hot topped with powdered sugar, more berry syrup or fresh berries.
