Creamy Strawberry French Toast

Hello everyone! Sorry I have not been around in a while - I have been busy busy! But, I am here now, to tell you about the best french toast ever!!! Great for a Sunday morning for the whole family! Try it and let me know what you think! Enjoy!

Ingredients for 4 people:

1 Loaf of really good egg bread, cut into 8 slices (thick slices)
1 tup of cream cheese (small tub), room temperature
1 cup of strawberries, mashed up with a Tblsp of sugar
Juice and rind of 1 orange, separated
6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Whipping cream, whipped
Real vanilla extract


Pair up your slices of bread so you have 4 pairs.
In a bowl, mix the mashed berries and sugar, the cream cheese, and orange rind.
In another bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, 1 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg.
Spread the cream cheese mixture on one of the slice of bread of each pair, and then, top with the other slice so you have a strawberry cream cheese sandwich.
In a pan, melt some butter. When the butter is melted, carefully dip your "sandwiches" in the egg and milk mixture, and then place in the pan. Cook for about 7-10 minutes on each side or until each side is golden brown.
While the French toast is cooking, mix the whipped cream, orange juice, 1 tsp cinnamon and vanilla extract.
Top the French toast with the whipped cream mixture and serve - YUM!!!!!
