Make breakfast something to dream about with a deceptively simple recipe for Strawberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast! Tangy cream cheese pairs perfectly with juicy strawberries, vanilla, and a touch of zingy lemon zest. No dairy? No problem! This recipe works well with your favorite dairy-free cream cheese alternative. The cream cheese mixture is spread between two pieces of slightly sweet and satisfying crunchy Bread SRSLY Seeded Sourdough before dipped into a spiced egg mixture and cooked until golden brown. I kept this recipe with just a hint of sugar, because if you’re like me, you’ll be drowning your French toast stack with rich maple syrup!
