Tonight we planned to have french toast with bacon and fruit for dinner. Since my waffle variation last week was such a success I thought this would be another easy meal to tweak. When we went grocery shopping there were some really beautiful strawberries. I decided to make stuffed french toast using the strawberries. I used about 2 oz of cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar and two spoon fulls of chopped up strawberries for the filling. I used a hand mixer and blended it all together. It reminded me of strawberry cream cheese that you would buy in the store. Then I used more chopped up strawberries and some honey to make a strawberry sauce by simmering it on the stove. I'm really liking the fruit sauces lately, can you tell?
I made the french toast as normal, I did slice the bread and leave it sitting out for about an hour to dry out a bit. Then I dipped it in the egg/milk mixture and cooked it. Once the french toast was cooked I spread the filling on one piece and placed the other on top and then topped with the strawberry sauce. This time I did snap pictures.
It was delicious! I am loving making these small changes that make our meals seem brand new. Granted I have only done it with breakfast type meals but I figure I would start there since they are generally easy meals and I try to have breakfast for dinner once a week.
