Berries and Cream French Toast
The fruit and cream cheese topping have a "cheesecake-like" taste. This is a decadent main course for breakfast!
- For the Cream:
- Two 3-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup marshmallow crème
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- For the Berries:
- 2 cups sliced fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon cold water
- For the Toast:
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 8 slices French bread (1 inch thick)
FOR THE CREAM:
In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, marshmallow crème and vanilla until smooth; set aside.
FOR THE BERRIES:
In a small saucepan, bring the strawberries and sugar to a boil. Reduce the heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Combine the cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir into the berry mixture. Return to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; keep warm until ready to serve.
FOR THE TOAST:
In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs and milk; dip both sides of the bread in the egg mixture. On a lightly greased hot griddle, cook the bread over medium heat for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
To serve, spread each piece of French toast with the cream cheese mixture; top with strawberry syrup.
