How to Make: (full instructions in recipe card)

  • First, whisk together the milk, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla. Set aside.
  • Melt chocolate and half/half in a saucepan or in the microwave. If you chose the microwave version, do this in 30 second intervals to prevent burning.
  • Spread a bit of the melted chocolate on top of a slice of bread. Top if off with another slice of bread, creating a sandwich.
  • Dip the entire sandwich in your milk/egg mixture. Then, cook on preheated griddle/skillet. Cook until both sides are brown.
  • Make Your Syrup: In a saucepan, mix together strawberries, lemon juice and sugar.
  • Over medium heat, continue cooking the mixture until the sugar is dissolved. Increase the heat, just slightly, and bring to a boil.
  • Let it simmer ( don’t leave it unattended!) until the mixture is thickened. This should take about 10 minutes.
  • Let it cool about 5-10 minutes before using.

Storage: Keep any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator. The french toast will be good for about 2 days. The syrup for about a week.

Woosh. Anything with chocolate is my weakness. This looks like a weakness, and a Sunday Brunch option for our family. We are kind of on the same page. We indulge. But we try to keep those indulgences to once or twice per week. (And sometimes 4 or 5, depending on the week)

This stuffed french toast reminds me of a sweet trip I took with my husband when we were dating to Maine - We had a cream cheese stuffed french toast with a strawberry sauce. This recipe is looking like a Sunday brunch addition in our home!
