I love the abundance of strawberries this time of year. What better way to showcase them in breakfast ideas such as this strawberry stuffed french toast recipe. However, since swim suit season is quickly approaching we will be swapping our regular bread with new Arnold® Healthfull® Bread! Made with 100 percent whole grain flour, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, and just 80 calories. You can find them in varieties of Flax & Sunflower, Nuts & Seeds, Steel Cut Oats & Honey. Perfect to add a little extra nutrition into your breakfast.
To make this easy breakfast idea of Strawberry Stuffed French Toast simply spread a thin layer of Cream Cheese, we used low fat, onto 2 pieces of Arnold® Healthfull® Bread.
Layer one side with thinly sliced strawberries.
In one bowl mix 2 eggs and milk and beat well. In a second bowl mix 3/4 cup sugar to 1/4 cup cinnamon.
First dip the sandwich into the egg mixture.
Then place in the bowl of the cinnamon sugar mixture or you can just sprinkle on each side.
Fry it up in a hot non stick pan with melted butter.
Serve with some powdered sugar and real maple syrup.
The kids and hubby really liked the combo of this french toast. It is fancy for the weekend, but also makes a simple breakfast idea for a busy school day.
