Man was this good! I fixed this for my husband who saw the commercial on TV about the french toast at IHOP and said he wanted that! I used whole wheat bread and halved the recipe. Of course after I tasted it I fixed the rest of the recipe!I didn't have fresh strawberries so I put a spoonful of strawberry jam on top of a dollop of sour cream, then drizzled the whole thing with maple syrup. So yummy! Thanks so much Evelyn for this scrumptious recipe!!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cut each slice of bread in half.
  2. Beat eggs with milk and pinch of salt.
  3. In separate bowl, mash cheese until smooth with cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla, adjusting to taste.
  4. Spread one-fourth of cheese filling evenly over four slices of bread.
  5. Top with unspread slices of bread to form half-sandwiches.
  6. Dip and soak each sandwich in egg-milk mixture, turning so both sides of each sandwich absorb liquid.
  7. Let excess drip off.
  8. Heat unsalted butter in 10 inch skillet, and when hot but not brown, add sandwiches.
  9. Reduce heat and fry slowly for 5 to 7 minutes, or until first side is golden.
  10. Turn and brown second side over low heat.
  11. If sandwiches fry too quickly, filling will not be warm.
  12. Serve immediately, allowing 2 halves to each portion.
  13. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar and top with sour cream and strawberries.
