Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast

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 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoon strawberry preserves
  • 8 slices country white bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoon (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.
