Stuffed French Toast filled with cream cheese and strawberry preserves. Top with fresh strawberries and powdered sugar. Enjoy for breakfast or brunch.


  • 1 Challah Loaf
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ c. whole milk
  • ½ c. heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. Nutmeg
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ½ c. strawberry preserves
  • 1 tsp. Powdered sugar
  • Butter for griddle


  1. In a small bowl, blend together the cream cheese, strawberry preserves, and powdered sugar. Using a rubber spatula, scoop the mixture in a storage zipper bag. Cut one end of the zipper bag to pipe inside the bread.
  2. Slice the Challah bread into 1 ½ inch slices using a serrated knife. Cut a 2-3 inch wide slit in the bottom of each slice creating a deep pocket but not too deep where you through the top of the bread slice. Pipe 2 heaping tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture into each slice.
  3. In a medium size bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined.
  4. Preheat oven on 250 Degrees or warm setting.
  5. Heat griddle to 350 Degrees. Melt a tablespoon of butter. Meanwhile, dip French Toast in custard mixture on both sides for 30 seconds. Cook on the griddle for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Place on a baking sheet or inside a casserole dish and place in oven until ready to serve. Top with sliced strawberries, powdered sugar, and syrup (if desired).
