Recipe for 2 servings
4 slices of bread
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp of sugar
1 tsp orange zest (optional)
2 tsp butter
2 tbsp orange juice (fresh or from a container)
1/2 package of cream cheese (softened)
6 strawberries cut into small pieces
Maple syrup (optional)
Directions: In a mixing bowl combine milk, beaten egg,cinnamon, sugar, vanilla, and orange zest and mix together. Heat a frying frying on medium heat and melt 1 tsp of the butter ( or enough to cover the bottom of the pan). then dip the bread slices into the egg mixture (making sure to coat all sides)
and fry in the pan until all sides are cooked and brown.Repeat this process until all the slices are cooked.
While the french toast is cooking combine the cream cheese, orange juice, and strawberries into a small mixing bowl. Stir until the mixture in thoroughly combined and strawberry bits are all throughout the mixture. It should look something like this
When two of the slices are about done cooking then scoop 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture on top of one of the bread slices. Spread the mixture out evenly on the bread and top with the other slice of toast. Cook for a minute more pressing down and flip it over. Once the middle is heated and the bread is toasted it is easy. Repeat for the other slices of bread. When you are done just top with strawberries and maple syrup! It's so tasty!
