Strawberry Stuffed French Toast

STUFFED FRENCH TOAST

John and I were home one Saturday night and nothing was on T.V. so we happened to be watching Throwdown with Bobby Flay about the best French toast. John said you gotta try that recipe! I tried to replicate La Isla’s famous French toast but the recipe called for a bunch of hard to find ingredients.

So I ended up changing the recipe into something entirely different starting with my classic French toast recipe but still keeping the idea but with simple ingredients. This easy recipe sooo good and with Mother’s Day coming up I think it would be for special occasions like that. Cream cheese and fresh berries. You can’t go wrong.

  1. For the filling: In a small bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, sugar, and chopped strawberries.bread with cream cheese
  2. Gently spoon 1/6 of the creamy strawberry filling on one slice of bread and top with another slice. Repeat with remaining bread. Refrigerate the prepared bread slices while you prepare the batter. This helps the filling stay firm.
