  • 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:

directions

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.
