Valentine's Breakfast Idea ~ Cream Cheese French Toast with Strawberries

It's been a long week, one that been full of lots of brain farts. I had today's post planned out so well in my head. I wanted to share a yummy recipe that would be perfect for Superbowl gatherings, but when I went to bake up my recipe, I found that I forgot to buy one important ingredient to put it all together. *pfffffft* <---my version of a brain fart noise. So, today I am jumping ahead to share a delicious Valentine's Day recipe instead. I always love this time of year because with the upcoming holiday, we get a month full of awesome sales on strawberries. I knew I wanted to make something with the sweet fruit for a Golden Blossom Honey post, but I'm still desserted out from all of the Christmas goodies I gorged on these past few months (spell check tells me desserted is not a word, but I say it is, so suck lemons spell check). After a quick browse of GBH's recipes, I found a Cream Cheese French Toast with Strawberries recipe that sounded too irresistible to pass up. 

Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

I have always used Texas toast when making French toast, so the idea of using actual French bread left my brain going  *pfffffft* once again. It was like "Hey, dummy! Why haven't you ever made that connection before!?" Please, someone tell me I'm not the only one who has never made it this way. Dummy's unite! I liked the control I had on slicing each piece of the French bread to fit the size I needed to add in the cream cheese stuffing. The drizzled honey lemon sauce was a tasty change from regular maple syrup. This sweet dish will make your Valentine's heart go pitter-patter ♥ Add in a little more strawberry sweetness if you like by tossing some chopped strawberries to the cream cheese filling before toasting it up, then put a dollop of whipped cream on the side. Mmmmmm! Valentine's breakfast perfection! 

Ingredients
6 slices French bread, 1-inch thick, cut diagonally
1 pint strawberries, sliced, and drizzled with 1 teaspoon RAW GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY

Filling:
4 ounces low-fat cream cheese
1 Tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
Mix filling ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.

Batter:
1 cup low-fat milk
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
2 egg whites
Beat batter ingredients until well blended. Set aside.

Sauce:
1/4 cup RAW GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY

  1. Is this the breakfast Jason will be getting in his bed on Valentines? :)
    So unusual to see strawberries in the middle of winter! I've never seen you make anything with raspberries, you don't like them?
    Lovely photos as usual.
    Never had a Valentines Day in my life

    1. Ha! I'm not making him diddly squat for Valentine's Day. He hates the holiday, so I usually buy myself a bag of chocolates and the girls a tin of chocolates for him to give us.
      I did a Raspberry Cheesecake for Easter a few years back http://www.theresasmixednuts.com/2015/04/white-chocolate-cheesecake-with.html. Though no, raspberries aren't my favorite fruit. I don't dislike them, they are just at the bottom of my list if I have other options to choose from.
