I love French Toast. I also love chocolate covered strawberries. What could be better than French Toast kicked up a notch?! This is an easy recipe that is pretty quick to make and put on the table. Enjoy!
1 Tablespoon of milk or cream or half and half (I used milk)
1/2 teaspoon of good vanilla, (I used Mexican)
Whipped Cream Cheese
3 strawberries sliced thin, or more to cover the inside of your bread
Chocolate chips, I used mini semi sweet to cover the inside of my bread
2 slices of bread for 1 chocolate covered strawberry French Toast
Strawberries for garnish, optional
Powdered sugar for garnish, optional
Heat your skillet or griddle on medium heat while you are preparing your French Toast. In s bowl, whisk egg, milk and vanilla together and set aside. Slice strawberries thin and lengthwise (long). Cover the inside of your bread with the whipped cream cheese from end to end, side to side. Place sliced strawberries on one side and lightly press down with your hand to adhere the strawberries to the cream cheese. On the other side of the bread, sprinkle the mini chocolate chips, again pressing lightly to make them stick to the cream cheese. Place the two side together and dip your French Toast into the egg mixture and carefully place on griddle or in your pan. Cook on medium, low and slow turning over when the bread is golden brown. When done, the cream cheese will be gooey, the chocolate will have melted all over the strawberries. What else can I say? Delicious! Garnish with powdered sugar and strawberries if desired. Perfect for a special occasion or brunch.
