Ingredients

  • 2 thick slices of bread
  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Oil or butter for cooking

Instructions

  1. Cut a slit in one side of the each slice of bread to form a pocket.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the strawberries, cream cheese, sugar, and salt. Gently spoon the mixture evenly into the bread pockets, being careful not to poke a hole in the bread.
  3. In a large, shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  4. Gently lay each stuffed bread into the egg mixture, letting each side of the bread soak up as much egg as possible.
  5. Add a touch of oil or butter to a pan and bring to medium/low heat. Cook each side of the bread until lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
  6. Serve warm, topped with maple syrup, Greek yogurt, honey, or slivered almonds.
