STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE FRENCH TOAST



I have a birthday coming up.  Usually when a special occasion rolls around like a birthday or Mother’s day, my kids offer to make me breakfast and serve it in bed.  This offer is genuine and incredibly kind, but I have yet to take them up on it.  There is something about eating in the same place I sleep that makes my skin crawl.  Literally.  I don’t want to feel crumbs against my skin as I roll from side to side in my slumber.  What if breakfast includes something sticky like syrup?  Can you imagine syrup on your sheets?  It’s best to avoid the mess and just eat breakfast at the table!

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
