My Mom always loved her french toast so this is in your memory Mom, wishing you could be here and missing you everyday.......
Strawberry Stuffed French Toast
4 thick slices of bakery style bread ( Ibuy a whole non sliced loaf and cut this so it's not cut all the way through)
Marscapone Cream Cheese or Regular Cream Cheese - softened
4 Tablespoons of heavy cream or milk
1 Tablespoon Amaretto plus 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract mom's favorite! (you can use all vanilla if you prefer)
1/2 stick butter
On two slices of bread spread a thick layer of cream cheese On the other two slices of bread spread a thick layer of jam. Make a cream cheese and jelly sandwich. Beat 6 eggs, milk and add flavoring. Dip each sandwich into egg batter.
Place a heavy duty large fry pan on medium heat with 1/2 stick melted butter and cook until brown nicely on one side, flip and brown other side. Make sure each side is browned evenly. Transfer to plate you can cut into triangles and heavily sprinkle with powdered sugar or just add maple syrup and
top with freshly sliced strawberries.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's in the world and thanks for being part of this special day with me....... Claudia
