Disclaimer: The yummy picture is not my french toast. My camera is misbehaving but this is similar to how mine looked.
When I decided to make Strawberry Stuffed French Toast, I didn't really know how my family would react. I know that they like french toast, but would they like it with a cream cheese type filling? The answer is "yes!" Everyone loved it and asked for seconds.
I made my stuffing with coconut kefir cheese because one of my children cannot have dairy.*** Cream cheese would work great too.
Gluten Free Stuffed French Toast
- 8 pieces gluten free bread
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- pinch stevia powder
- 3 oz cream cheese
- maple syrup
- Whisk together eggs, milk, and stevia. In a separate bowl, blend cream cheese and strawberry puree. Spread 2 Tbsp of strawberry mixture on 4 slices of bread. Assemble sandwiches and dip in egg mixture. Brown each side on a griddle. Top with remaining strawberry mixture and drizzle with maple syrup.
***Some options would be to strain dairy free plain yogurt (Turtle Mtn makes a coconut yogurt that's dairy free) or make Cashew Cream Cheese.
