>Apparently this is a big hit, so I’m putting down the recipe for you all to have and enjoy. Just be forewarned: I don’t usually cook from a recipe, so these measurements are approximate. Feel free to put your own spin on it! The name is really misleading, because I technically didn’t stuff anything. It’s more like a French Toast Sandwich, but whatever…
Here’s what you’ll need:
8 slices Texas Toast (or another thickly sliced bread)
4 large eggs
2-3 tablespoons of milk (although, I was out of milk, so I used coffee creamer!)
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 brick cream cheese – room temperature (you can put it in the microwave on defrost for a few minutes to soften it up if you don’t want to wait)
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1-2 cups cut strawberries – depending on your taste
Crack the eggs into a bowl that is big enough to dip your bread into. Beat the eggs with a wire whisk, add milk and cinnamon, and beat some more. Dip your bread into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides of the bread. Lay the bread on a griddle that has been heated over medium-high heat (make sure you spray your pan with cooking spray!). Keep an eye on your bread, and flip the slices as they become golden brown. Burnt toast isn’t as good (and it makes your smoke alarm pretty upset too).
In another bowl (or your stand mixer if you have one) mix the cream cheese and sugar together until the mixture comes to a nice, smooth consistency. I love my stand mixer for this, but if you don’t have one, just be patient – it will come together before you know it.
Once your toast is done, take two slices and spread the cream cheese mixture between them – like you’re making a peanut butter sandwich. I like a lot of the cream cheese on mine, so I used probably around 2 tablespoons for each sandwich. You use what you like. Sprinkle the powdered sugar over the french toast, and top with strawberries.
This would be really good with blueberries, raspberries or cherries too! You don’t really need syrup on this, but if you want to add that, it’s up to you. Ooooh…it might be yummy to try adding cocoa into the cream cheese mixture, making a chocolate cream cheese french toast….I’ll have to try that one next time!
