We have been back on a great routine of letting the kids cook. This is another recipe that my daughter Faith picked out from her Southern Living Children’s Cookbook. From the 5 kid cookbooks that we have this is usually the one that she wants to cook from, partly I think because it has great photos of every recipe.
Lay out 12 slices of bread. (We used 12 slices of double loaf Panera bread and actually made a double recipe, but instructions are for a single recipe.)
Spread half the slices with Strawberry Jam and the other half with softened cream cheese. (We placed about 3 oz in the microwave for 15 seconds.)
Fold each slice with cream cheese over the slices with strawberry jam.
In a shallow dish add three eggs, three tablespoons milk, and 1/8 teaspoon salt and whisk until well blended.
Place a sandwich into the egg mixture and turn to coat both sides.
Lightly spray a non-stick skillet with Pam cooking spray.
Cook the stuffed French toast sandwiches over medium heat for about three minute each side or until the egg is done and the bread is golden brown. Repeat until all the French Toast is cooked.
While the French Toast is cooking, chop the strawberries.
After the toast is done, remove from heat and place on a serving dish. Using a sifter, sprinkle toast with powdered sugar.
Top with a fresh strawberry and serve.
The kiddos loved this recipe!!!
Note to self: Next time occupy the little kids with something else while helping the older ones in the kitchen! It was a little harried as we were all hungry, the little kids were constantly underfoot asking questions and getting in the way, and I lost my patience with them several times. This is a very easy recipe, but requires many steps so for a new chef some concentration is essential. It was worked great to cook with all of them with simpler recipes though.

Om goodness this looks soooo good. I read it to my hubby on his lunch break and he was like oooo that sounds good lol
I love to order stuffed french toast whenever we go out to eat breakfast, but I’ve never made it myself. Now that I have a recipe, I think I’ll try making it at home!
Thanks for sharing = )
This looks so good and much easier to make than I would have expected. I’m going to have to add it to the menu plan soon. It would be perfect as a “breakfast for dinner” night.
Love this! A new Linking Party begins THIS Saturday over at Thet2women.com and we would love if you would link this up there on Sat! Thanks! Here’s the link:
This looks delicious! I think my girls would enjoy making and eating this! Their wonderful grandma makes homemade strawberry jam, so this would be a fun way to use it. Thank you for posting!
