Strawberry Stuffed French Toast



This spin on traditional french toast includes a strawberry surprise that will put a smile on your kid’s face. Maple syrup is optional! And I have been known to use a heart-shaped cookie cutter on Valentine’s Day.

This recipe also includes a variation for Strawberry-Banana Stuffed French Toast. Feel free to make your own fruit combination, too!

Strawberry Stuffed French Toast (makes 6 slices)

©myplate2yours

6 slices whole grain white bread

4 eggs

1 tablespoon skim milk

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

10 fresh strawberries, sliced (for Strawberry-Banana Stuffed French Toast, use 1/2 large banana sliced to replace five of the strawberries)

1/2 cup strawberry fruit spread

1 tablespoon Earth Balance spread (or butter)

Whisk eggs in a shallow bowl with milk and cinnamon. Combine strawberries and fruit spread in a small microwavable bowl. Heat in microwave for 1 minute. (Add bananas to warm strawberries, if using). Stir and set aside.

Heat large skillet, add 1/2 tablespoon Earth Balance and allow to melt. Dip 3 slices bread in egg mixture and cook on skillet, about 2 minutes per side. Remove slices to a clean and dry cutting board. Repeat with remaining 3 slices of bread. Using a 2 inch biscuit or heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut a hole in center of toast. On individual plates, place one slice of bread, and fill with 2 tablespoons strawberry mixture. Top with toast round. Repeat with remaining 5 slices. Serve with powdered sugar and maple syrup, if desired. Enjoy!
