Try this delicious stuffed french toast for your Easter brunch or breakfast....use any fresh fruit you like :)
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tbl vanilla
- 2 tbl cinnamon
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup strawberry puree
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1 loaf day old bread or regular sliced sandwich bread
- confectioners sugar
- Strawberries for garnish

*Note: Use a bunny cookie cutter and cut out heart shapes with your bread! Do this prior to adding the cream cheese mixture to the center.
- In a medium size bowl, whisk milk, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon with the beaten eggs. In a separate bowl combine strawberry puree and cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
- Slice the bread in half (if using a loaf bread, slice into 1 inch slices then cut in half). Spread the strawberry cream cheese mixture into the center of the bread and top with the other half. Continue with remaining bread slices.
- Melt butter in a large skillet. Dip the sandwiched bread into the egg mixture until coated. Cook until browned on both sides. Dust with confectioners sugar, sliced strawberries and whipped cream!
