Breakfast at our house usually consists of the basics, eggs, bacon or sausage, pancakes or biscuits and gravy. All of these are good, but I wanted something different. I came across 2 recipes for Strawberry Cream Cheese Filled French Toast. I found the first on, and then the same day, Sarah from "What's Cookin'?" posted the same recipe. It sounded so good, I decided to make it this weekend. I tweaked it just a little because I didn't have all the ingredints listed, but it was still a BIG hit with my family! Here is the recipe, according to how I made it. Try it out, and see what your family thinks!

Strawberry Cream Cheese Filled French Toast:

8oz cream cheese, softened
2 tbs. Strawberry freezer jam
1 tbs. orange juice

French Toast:
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
about 1/4 cup orange juice (I didn't measure, just added until I got the right consistancy!)
8 slices, Texas Toast style bread

Preheat griddle, combine filling ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.(I kept mine in the fridge until I was ready for it) In a shallow dish, beat eggs, milk, vanilla, and orange juice together. With a paring knife, slice a pocket into the side of the bread, but don't cut all the way through. Fill the pocket with about a tablespoon (I used more!) of the filling. Dip the bread into the egg mixture, and place on the griddle. Cook about 2-3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining slices. Serve hot with additional strawberry filling, and powdered sugar if desired. (We poured more freezer jam on top, and drizzled with pancake syrup!)
