Stuffed Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast

Sunday, May 8, 2011
Stuffed Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast is the best ever stuffed with creamy cheese and jam then fried.

Mom loved changing the jams from strawberry, blueberry, pineapple, and with the mascarpone cheese, unique each time with different flavors with that creamy cheesecake-filled French toast.

This French Toast breakfast or brunch gourmet breakfast was reserved for special occasions, birthdays, Mother's Day, and Holidays.

Best French Toast Tips

  1. always heat the griddle first for the best results
  2. use butter or olive oil to fry the toast in
  3. do not over-soak the bread or it will be a soggy mess
  4. for sweeter-tasting French toast add a teaspoon of sugar
  5. always use thickly cut bread and the best result is slicing from a whole loaf of Italian bread never use American bread
  6. try using melted Tiramisu ice cream in place of heavy cream or another melted ice cream

this is the mixture in a glass bowl to make french toast copycat from the Denny's restaurant recipe
