Strawberry-stuffed French Toast
This great recipe comes from a charming little Bed & Breakfast called the White Cedar Inn, in Freeport, Maine. I have only made slight changes, using ingredients that were easier to find in local supermarkets. I believe the final product is pretty close to their highly requested dish. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!"This recipe can be adapted SO many different ways! We still make the strawberry-stuffed French Toast, but we've also made it with fresh blackberries mixed with honey and cream cheese; orange marmalade (makes it like a Creamsicle bar); raspberries and pretty much any berry-like fruit.
Thank you for posting the recipe, it really is a hit with our guests!

Strawberry-stuffed French Toast Preparation
Soften 1st TBS of butter and spread along slices of toast. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of cinnamon on each side of both pieces of toast. Take one of your slices of toast and spread cream cheese on, spreading evenly. Take 1 of your strawberries and slice thinly. Then layer all slices on top of cream cheese. Take the 2 TBS of strawberry preserves and spread on top of sliced strawberries. Take 2nd piece of toast and place on top to make a sandwich. Set french toast sandwich aside.
In a shallow pie plate or bowl, whisk egg, cream and other 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. While holding sandwich firmly together, dip all sides of sandwich in egg mixture until completely coated. Set aside.
Heat 2nd TBS of butter in a small saute pan on medium or a griddle heated to350 deg F. Once butter is melted and pan or griddle is hot, begin to cook your french toast sandwich turning after a few minutes, or until cheese is melted & the sandwich is golden brown on all sides. Once golden brown, turn up heat a little more to toast each side and crisp it up.
Warm the 1/4 cup of strawberry preserves either in the microwave or on the stovetop to create a syrup consistency.
To serve: Plate your sandwich and drizzle strawberry syrup on top. You may also slice your second strawberry only from crown to tip without separating it and fan out to garnish and then spinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
