Stuffed Strawberry and Cheese French Toast

Yah it’s Friday!!  I am so happy for the weekend to be here.  No immediate plans, just happy I can sleep in a bit!  For your weekend breakfast I have a wonderful stuffed strawberry french toast recipe just for you!

I got this idea from Food Networks Dinners, Drive In’s and Dives a few months ago and it was sitting in the back of my mind forever!  I am glad I finally made it!!  This was quick, simple and the flavors are amazing!  I love the combination of cream cheese and strawberries together.   Mmmmm, creamy, cheesy, sweet, yum, yums!

They key to keeping the calorie count low on french toast is the bread.  I used Alvarado Street Bakery Bread that I picked up from Trader Joe’s.  It’s wheat bread with flax seed and only comes in at 50 calories a slice.  So if you use a different bread just be sure to knock off a 100 calories of my bread and add yours in.  I really like the bread because it’s soft in the middle and the crust is kind of crunchy.

I figured having french toast would be a different change-up from my usual pancakes.  I’m so glad I made it!  You could also use other fruit you like such as thin sliced apples and pears or other berries.  Me, I have a love for strawberries.  Like a mentioned last week, you’re going to see a lot of strawberry type recipes. Why I haven’t gotten sick of strawberries, I’ll never know?
