Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast
How many ways can I say YUMMY?!
After you have french toast this way, you'll never want to make the "original" kind again.
You can make it into any flavor Cheesecake, by just changing the preserves.
Also you can use pie filling instead of preserves.
Cherry, apple and blueberry pie filling work the best.
8 oz. pkg. Cream Cheese, softened
4 TBSP. Powdered Sugar
4 TBSP. Strawberry preserves (or pie filling)
1 C. half-and-half
4 TBSP. Sugar
16 slices of white bread
Combine the Cream cheese, powdered sugar until smooth. Stir in preserves.
Spread cheesecake mixture over 8 slices of bread; top with remaining slices to form a sandwich.
Whisk together half/half, sugar & eggs.
Dip each "sandwich" into egg mixture covering each side.
Melt approximately 2 TBSP. margarine in skillet (for each sandwich)
Cook "sandwich" 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Serve hot with Syrup and powdered sugar.
I doubled the recipe and had ton's of filing left over....so we used it as a topping as well.
