Ingredients

  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry jam
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped banana
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Butter
  • 1 bag frozen strawberries, thawed, or 1 quart fresh strawberries
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • Sauce
  • 1 bag frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

Directions

  • Cut the bread into 1 1/2- to 2-inch slices. Cut a pocket into each one by slicing from the top of the bread almost to the bottom.
  • Combine jam, cream cheese, strawberries and bananas in a small bowl.
  • Place heaping tablespoon of strawberry filling into each pocket. Press sides back together.
  • Beat eggs and milk in wide shallow bowl. Dip filled bread slice into bowl, coating both sides.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add as many slices as will fit and brown on both sides. Remove slices from pan and stack it bottom up on its side in a glass pan and keep warm in oven while cooking remaining French Toast.
  • In a blender, puree the strawberries with the sugar, adding just enough water, to get the blender going. Heat sauce in microwave or in a double boiler.

Notes
