Cheese-Filled French Toast With Strawberry Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

Although the original of this recipe was found in the Taste of Home Brand-Name Cookbook, Spring 2005, it has been tweaked to please my household. I did not include the vegetable oil for cooking because I didn't want it calculated in the Nutrition Facts.

I love stuffed French Toast and especially with the strawberry stuffing. I used the ingredients I had on hand, such full fat sour cream and white bread. Instead of making the strawberry syrup, I just dusted it with powdered sugar and it was still nice and sweet with the stuffing and a light strawberry flavor, perfect especially with the lower fat cream cheese!!

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla, lemon juice & 1/4 cup of the preserves until well blended, then set aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine remaining preserves & the tablespoon of water, then microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir & microwave for another 30 seconds or until melted, then set aside.
  3. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt & cinnamon. Dip bread slices into this egg mixture, then set them on a platter.
  4. Spread half of the slices with the cream cheese mixture, then top each spread slice with a slice of dipped bread, making 6 'sandwiches.'.
  5. In a large skillet, heat 1/8 inch of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until oil is hot but not smoking. Working in batches, transfer 'sandwiches' to the skillet & cook about 90 seconds or until lightly browned, then turn them over & cook another 60 seconds or until deep golden brown & slightly puffy.
  6. Remove the filled French toast & allow them to drain briefly on several layers of paper towels.
  7. Serve hot with the melted preserves.
