French toast topped with glazed strawberries and stuffed with cheesecake. Soooo good and original. Perfect to impress at a brunch. Serve with mimosas for a fancier brunch-type setting, or just make it for a special Saturday morning breakfast for your family like I do. =)

  • Heat mashed strawberries and 1/2 cup white sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.

  • Mix cornstarch and water together in a bowl, then stir into the strawberries.

  • Cook and stir until thickened, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and simmer while preparing remaining ingredients, stirring occasionally.

  • Whisk together the milk and eggs in a bowl; set aside.

  • Mash cream cheese, vanilla extract, and 3/4 cup white sugar in a bowl until smooth.

  • Spread the cream cheese mixture over a triangle-shaped piece of bread, and top with another piece. Repeat with remaining bread and cream cheese mixture to make 8 triangle-shaped sandwiches.

  • Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

  • Dip the sandwiches into the egg mixture, 2 or 3 at a time, and place in the skillet.

  • Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.

  • Transfer pan-fried sandwiches to a baking sheet and place in the preheated oven to keep warm while cooking remaining sandwiches.

  • To serve, top French toast with warm strawberry glaze and sliced fresh strawberries and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
