Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast


  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 8 slices of thick cut white or brioche bread
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese at room temperature
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 bananas, sliced into ½ inch pieces
  • 6 strawberries, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • Whipped cream for topping



  1. In a very shallow, wide bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Place one slice of bread in the bowl and allow it to soak for a few seconds before flipping to coat the other side. Repeat with remaining slices.
  2. In separate bowl, beat together cream cheese and powdered sugar.
  3. Place 4 coated slices of bread on a cutting board and spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over each slice.
  4. Add a layer of sliced bananas and strawberries, then top with the remaining 4 pieces of bread to create 4 sandwiches.
  5. Add 1 tbsp. of butter to a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. When the butter starts to bubble, place two sandwiches in the pan. Cook for 3 or 4 minutes, then flip and cook for 3 or 4 minutes more.
  6. Remove the sandwiches from the pan and add more butter if necessary before cooking the final two sandwiches.
  7. Top each sandwich with a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries before serving.
