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!


2 slices Thick cut Italian bread
2 tablespoon Unsalted butter; divided
1 teaspoon Cinnamon; divided
2 tablespoona Whipped cream cheese
2 Strawberries
2 tablespoon Strawberry preserves
1 medium Egg
1 tablespoon Heavy cream
0.25 cup Strawberry preserves
1 teaspoon Powdered sugar

Original recipe makes 1 Serving



Soften 1st TBS of butter and spread along slices of bread. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of cinnamon on each side of both pieces of bread. Take one of your slices of bread and spread cream cheese on, spreading evenly. Take 1 of your strawberries and slice thinly. Then layer the slices on top of cream cheese. Take the 2 TBS of strawberry preserves and spread on top of sliced strawberries. Take 2nd piece of bread 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 to 350 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 sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

It was very good but very sweet. I was also kind of annoyed that my slices slid apart. I used my left over heavy cream and made whipped cream to put on top.

Loved it!!! I didn't have fresh strawberries so I just mixed the strawberry preserves w/ the cream cheese and used that as the filling. I added some vanilla extract and sugar to my egg mix. Thanks!!!

Easy and Delicious! You can easily put any berry you'd like. I found my favorite was a combination of strawberry, raspberries, and blueberries.

I can see why this is a huge hit amongst your guests at the inn. It sounded so good, that I just had to take a stab at re-creating it. It was devoured in minutes !
