For someone that claims to not have much of a sweet tooth (this is me) I am totally in love with my breakfast carbs covered in sweet stuff lately. I could live on pancakes, waffles, and french toast, with a doughnut added in every now and then.

I LOAD them up with berries, well not the doughnuts unless you count jelly,  so I fool myself into thinking I’m eating healthy, but really I don’t even care. Breakfast is my thing.

and you can cut the sweetness with bacon of course 🙂

Sweet broiche, stuffed with cream cheese, berries and topped with whipped cream, this strawberry shortcake stuffed french toast would make an amazing Easter or mother’s day breakfast. I hope Ian is listening.

Ingredients:

    • 1 loaf brioche of challah, cut into 8 slices
    • 3 eggs
    • 1½ cup whole milk
    • 1 Tbsp sugar
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • ½ tsp salt
    • dash of cinnamon
    • 2 Tbsp butter
    • 4 Tbsp cream cheese
    • 1 cup of strawberries, hulled and sliced
    • 1 cup of heavy cream, whipped
    • powdered sugar for topping
 

Directions:

  • in a shallow baking dish (large enough to fit the bread slices) whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon
  • spread each slice of bread with ½ Tbsp cream cheese, and top half of the slices with strawberries
  • sandwich together - to make 4 sandwiches
  • place sandwiches in the egg mixture (1 or 2 at a time), and soak 1 minute per side
  • melt 1 Tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium, to medium low heat
  • place 2 stuffed french toast into the skillet, and cook 4 - 5 minutes on each side (make sure the egg mixture is completely cooked)
  • keep french toast warm in a 200 degree oven while you finish the batch
  • repeat with the remaining 2 sandwiches
  • top each stuffed french toast with powdered sugar, sliced berries, and freshly whipped cream

 

I almost always will make french toast with brioche, but challah would be SO good too, and I am addicted to challah making lately.

If strawberries aren’t your thing, try blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries. Or even skillet cooked apples with sugar and cinnamon. It’s dessert dressed as breakfast, so you really cannot go wrong.

YUM
