  • Step 2 – In a small bowl, beat together cream cheese and powdered sugar. You want this really smooth and mixed together well.
  • Step 3 – Take two slices of bread and spread some of the cream cheese mixture onto each piece of bread. Try to keep the mixture in the middle and not around the edges. This will help once you are frying it.

Step 4 – The strawberries need to be dry so you don’t add extra moisture to the french toast.  Just use a paper towel to dry them to remove any excess juices.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Trick to Not Soggy French Toast?

When placing the bread in the milk mixture, make sure to not soak the bread for no longer than 15 seconds. You want to coat the bread but quickly remove and place on the hot skillet. This helps to keep the bread from getting soggy.

What is the Best Bread for French Toast?

French Toast bread is best made with slightly stale thick bread. We like using Brioche, Challah, French Bread, and French Baguettes. You can even use gluten-free bread.

How to Keep French Toast Warm Before Serving?

We usually cook the French Toast in batches so before serving, I usually place the prepared French Toast in a baking dish and place in a warm oven. This works best for my large family. This way everyone gets a warm breakfast.

How to Store Leftover French Toast

Store leftover French Toast in an Airtight Container in the refrigerator. The leftovers will stay fresh for up to 3 days.
