Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast

(28 Votes)
2 Min

You'll feel like you woke up in a charming country inn when you taste this stuffed French toast. It's so creamy smooth, it's like eating a warm dessert cheesecake!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry preserves
  • 8 slices country white bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
What To Do:
  1. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and confectioners' sugar; mix well then stir in preserves. Spread equally over 4 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices, forming sandwiches.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs, half-and-half, and granulated sugar until well combined.
  3. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Dip each sandwich into egg mixture, completely coating both sides. Cook 2 sandwiches at a time for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until golden. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in skillet and cook remaining 2 sandwiches. Slice each in half diagonally, and serve.
Garnishing Tip

Make this look and taste extra-fancy by topping it with additional confectioners' sugar and maple syrup and/or fresh fruit.

I don't usually buy or have half and half. Is there anything I can use besides that?

You can substitute milk for the half-and-half in this recipe.

Another great recipe from Mr. Food's test kitchen. Made this for breakfast and it was a hit, and it is very filling.

My kids would love this as it is all their favorites in one!

Now this looks like a good one and I have all the fixins'!

French toast is one of my favorite breakfast foods. This looks so yummy I gotta try this. I usually have biscuits and gravy for Christmas morning but this year we are going to try this french toast recipe.

I will have to try this for it looks really good!

Looks delish.

Num num.

Looks really yummy


This sounds like a delicious version of French toast.

Looks delicious! This would make a great dessert. Probably would not eat for breakfast.

i made this for the 2nd time this morning this time i substitued some blueberry bread and added some fresh sliced strawberries to the filling delicious

Just made this this morning and it was delicious ! I also cut some fresh strawberries and added to the filling. My husband loved it.

A local restaurant makes "French Toast Supreme" using the sweet cheese with a layer of bananas in the french toast sandwich. Then they top the sandwich with fresh strawberries, a few blueberries, a sprinkle of pecans, and a drizzle of carmel sauce topping. Of course, some whipped cream is suggested to finish off their creation. I order this and savor every morsel. It's so good...I wish I could lick the plate!

I have made this twice for company. Both times I used fresh ripe strawberries. I diced them into small pieces with about 1 TBLS sugar and let them sit for about an hour. Drained some of the juices off, then mixed with the cream cheese. I used WAY more than the two TBLS of preserves called for in this recipe. (I also used more than 3 ounces of cream cheese). Followed the rest of the recipe as stated. Both times my guests just raved about it and wished for "seconds". I will keep this recipe to use for guests or brunches I have. I think I will also make this for my family for Christmas breakfast. Thanks for a wonderful "french toast" recipe.

Didn't have strawberry preserves so used apricot preserves and threw in a few dried apricots--great!

very easy to make and everyone loved it
