Ingredients For the French Toast:

  • 8 slices of thick bread (like brioche or challah)
  • 1 cup milk (any variety you prefer)
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter or cooking spray (for cooking)

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup cream cheese (use a plant-based version if you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar (adjust based on sweetness preference)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup strawberries, thinly sliced

For Serving:

  • Additional strawberries, for topping
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting
  • Maple syrup (optional)


  1. Prepare the Filling:
  • In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and creamy.
  • Gently fold in the sliced strawberries, trying not to crush them.
  1. Assemble the Stuffed French Toast:
  • Lay out 4 slices of bread. Spread a generous amount of the cream cheese and strawberry mixture on each slice.
  • Place the remaining 4 slices of bread on top to make sandwiches.
  1. Make the French Toast Batter:
  • In a shallow dish, whisk together the milk, flour, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt until smooth.
  1. Cook the French Toast:
  • Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and melt a bit of butter or spray with cooking spray.
  • Dip each stuffed sandwich into the milk mixture, allowing it to soak for a few seconds on each side. Be careful not to soak it too long, or the bread may fall apart.
  • Place the soaked sandwiches on the hot skillet. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
  1. Serve:
  • Cut each stuffed French toast in half or serve whole, topped with additional sliced strawberries and a dusting of powdered sugar.
  • If desired, drizzle with maple syrup for added sweetness.

This stuffed French toast recipe brings a luxurious twist to a breakfast classic, perfectly balancing the richness of cream cheese with the brightness of fresh strawberries. It’s a celebration of flavors and textures, sure to delight anyone looking for a special morning treat.
