Sweet Vanilla & Cream Cheese, Strawberry Stuffed French Toast

  
Ah the weekend! You know how much I love a lavish brekkie at the weekend! After 5 mornings of porridge it doesn’t quite cut it for the end of the week. I used an extremely handy madigascan vanilla grinder by Dr Oetker that I picked up but you can split a vanilla pod & use the seeds either. This was sweet & heavenly for just 6 propoints & only 1 on F&H. Here’s the skinny: 2 Slices Calorie Controlled Wholemeal Bread

2 Eggs

65g Philadelphia Lightest Cream Cheese

1 Punnet Strawberries 

Sweetener

Vanilla seeds

A Tiny Dash of Skimmed Milk   Start by chopping the strawberries & place in a bowl, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sweetener, stir it through & set aside for at least 5 minutes to marinade so the sweetener draws out some of the strawberry juice & they become nice & glossy. In a separate bowl mix the cream cheese, as much vanilla seeds as desired and a teaspoon of sweetener. In a shallow dish that the bread will fit into later combine 1 egg with the egg white of the second egg, some more vanilla seeds, a half a teaspoon of sweetener & a tiny dash of skimmed milk and mix well.   

Spread the cream cheese mixture thickly over one slice of bread & layer the glossy strawberries on and top with the other slice of bread. Very carefully lower the sandwich into the egg mix (using a spatula will help). Leave for 2 minutes to soak up some of the mix. Preheat a non stick frying pan over a medium high heat and spray it with oil. Carefully turn the sandwich in the egg mix and leave for another 2 minutes to soak up the egg mix. Fry the sandwich for approximately 4 minutes a side or until cooked through. Sprinkle with sweetener, serve & enjoy!
