Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast

Serves 4


  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • Italian bread, sliced approx. one inch thick ( 8 slices for 4 servings)
  • Cheesecake Filling (see below)
  • Strawberry Compote (see below)

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix the three ingredients together using a hand mixer. There will be extra filling.

Strawberry Compote:

  • 6 cups sliced strawberries
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together in a small saucepan. Cook the mixture on low/medium heat until the
strawberries soften and the mixture thickens, approximately 30 minutes. If the mixture is too thin for
your taste, prepare a slurry using a tablespoon of cornstarch with ¼ cup of water and at it to the sauce.

Egg Batter:

Whisk together the eggs, milk and ½ teaspoon vanilla and set aside. Cut each slice of bread
approximately ¾ of the way down, to create a pocket. Fill the pocket with the cheesecake filling
(approx. 3-4 tablespoons or so). Dip the filled bread into the egg mixture. Place the dipped bread on
the griddle and cook both sides of the bread until golden brown. Place a small amount of the
strawberry compote on the plate, topped with two slices of French toast. Serve with additional
