Heavenly Strawberry French Toast...

If you are looking for something to make for Christmas morning that will impress anyone, this is your lucky day.  My mother-in-law makes this for us every time we come visit.  I can't even tell you how good it is, you'll just have to try it.  First start with a loaf of Hawaiian bread or the cinnamon swirl bread.  The cinnamon is my favorite.  Then slice strawberries about 1/2 inch thick.

Next you need to make the cream cheese filling:
Mix 8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 C. powdered sugar
1 TBLS vanilla
1/2 TSP Cinnamon

Spread on two pieces of bread and layer with spread and sliced strawberries.

Then you can make a traditional french toast egg/milk mixture.  My mother-in-law only uses egg whites.  So probably about 7 eggs and a quarter cup of milk.
Then carefully dip both sides into egg mixture and slap it on the grill.
For the delicious strawberry syrup in a blender blend:
1 1/2 cup of strawberries
Pour into a saucepan and add 2 TBLS concentrate Orange Juice and 1/2 C. of maple syrup
Once heated through drizzle on top of your french toast and sprinkle powdered sugar.

I promise this will become one of your favorites!
