Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Eggs: For a richer taste, you can use egg yolks only.
  • Whole milk: Substitute with almond milk or any plant-based milk.
  • Strawberries: Raspberries or blueberries can also add a delightful twist.

Tips and Tricks

  1. Sealing the Bread: Press the edges of the bread firmly to ensure the filling doesn’t leak out. This part requires a bit of patience.
  2. Choosing Strawberries: Fresh, in-season strawberries will maximize the flavor. If possible, pick strawberries straight from the patch!
  3. Even Cooking: Make sure your skillet is evenly heated to avoid burning and ensure a nice, consistent crispness.
  4. Triple Treat: For extra indulgence, top your Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast with confectioners’ sugar, syrup, and a dollop of whipped cream.

Storage Instructions

  1. Refrigeration: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will stay fresh for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
  2. Reheating: Reheat in a toaster oven or skillet for the best texture. Avoid using the microwave as it may make the toast soggy.
  3. Freezing: These can be frozen for up to a month. Just wrap each piece in plastic wrap and place them in a ziplock bag. Reheat directly from the freezer by baking at 350°F for about 10 minutes.
