If you are looking for a breakfast “Wow!” for Father’s Day look no further. I highly recommend making the man you are honoring Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast.
This recipe elegantly uses those delicious seasonal strawberries, while filling up the heartiest man’s appetite.
Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast
1 carton (8 ounces) ricotta cheese
3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 slices bread (sliced ½-inch thick) (you can use French bread, a buttery brioche or Texas Toast–choose whatever your family likes.)
1 cup milk
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
Additional powdered sugar, sweetend whipped cream and maple syrup
In a small bowl combine ricotta cheese, sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Spread 2 tablespoons of the mixture on eight slices of bread. Cover with remaining bread slices. (Looks like a cheese cake sandwich.)
In a medium-sized bowl beat together eggs and milk. Soak sandwiches for 1-2 minutes per side in egg/milk mixture.
Remove from milk/egg mixture and place on a hot buttered griddle. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and heated through.
Lightly dust each french toast serving with powdered sugar. Top with sliced fresh strawberries and a dollop of sweetened whip cream. Have warm maple syrup ready and serve.
Makes 4-6 servings.
Happy Father’s Day everyone!
