Strawberry Stuffed French Toast
Strawberry Stuffed French Toast is a fun breakfast or brunch idea for Valentine's Day made with brioche bread, cream cheese and strawberries!
Servings 6 servings
- 8 ounces whipped cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons honey
- ¼ cup diced strawberries plus more for serving.
- 12 slices brioche bread one loaf
- 1 cup milk
- 4 eggs
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons butter
In a medium bowl, combine the whipped cream cheese with the honey and strawberries, set aside.
In a large shallow bowl, add the milk, eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt and whisk to combine.
Spread the cream cheese mixture on 6 slices of brioche, then seal with the other 6 slices.
Heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add ½ tablespoon butter to the skillet.
Dip the stuffed brioche in the egg and milk mixture, dredging them well on both sides so they are coated in the batter. Immediately transfer from the bowl to the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes until edges become golden brown, then flip and cook on the other side for an additional 3-4 minutes. Repeat for the remaining 5.
Remove from heat and serve with extra strawberries and maple syrup and powdered sugar, if desired.
Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat on a skillet for best results.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
- Instead of regular milk, you can use any other plant-based milk.
- Instead of eggs, you can use flax egg.
- Instead of cream cheese, you can use greek yogurt or any other spread you'd like.
