Stuffed French Toast Recipe ... WARNING: you will be DROOLING!

It's been quite a long while since I linked up to Show Us Your Life over at Kelly's Korner, but yesterday when she said it was going to be breakfast recipes, I decided to once again break with the tour of the new home and give you guys this recipe ... Stuffed French Toast.

I got this recipe from "anyone can cook" and it's a Better Homes and Garden edition, which of course, means it's great.

Stuffed Croissant French Toast

Ingredients

1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened                                    1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1/4 c. maple-flavored syrup                                                    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped fresh strawberries                                           1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 large baked croissant                                                           fresh strawberries, halved
2 eggs                                                                                  maple-flavored syrup
1/2 c. half-and-half or light cream

Directions

(1) For filling, in a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese and the 1/4 c. syrup with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined; stir in the 1/2 c. strawberries.  Cut each croissant in half, leaving one side intact.  Divide filling among croissants.


(2) In a large bowl whisk together eggs, half-and-half, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Using your hands, carefully dip each side of the filled croissants into the egg mixture, being careful not to squeeze out the filling.

(3) Lightly grease a 12-inch skillet on a griddle.  Cook filled croissants, two at a time if necessary, over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.  If some of the filling leaks out into the skillet, wipe it off and lightly grease the skillet again before cooking remaining croissants.  Serve warm.   Top with additional strawberries and drizzle with additional syrup.  Makes 4 servings.

(4) Eat and decide to double recipe because it was so delicious!
