Strawberry Chocolate French Toast

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 15


  • 1 quart hulled and thinly sliced strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons divided sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 oz softened cream cheese
  • 2 (1 oz) squares chopped semisweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons plus more to garnish confectioner's sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 (1/2-inch-thick) slices challah bread
  • 1/4 cup butter


In a medium bowl, combine strawberries and 2 tablespoons sugar; cover, and chill for 15 minutes.

In a shallow dish, whisk together milk, remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and eggs; set aside.

In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, chocolate, confectioner’s sugar and vanilla. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over one side of 6 bread slices. Cover with remaining bread slices to make a sandwich. Dip sandwiches, one at a time, in milk mixture.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add sandwiches, in batches if necessary, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Serve topped with sugared strawberries. Garnish with confectioner’s sugar, if desired.
