Happy Fathers Day to all our dad's in Blogland and our readers.  This is what I made for my hubby on Father's Day.  Had to feed him well today, we spend the entire day in the barn cleaning, reorganizing. What a day!  This breakfast is very easy to make, and delicious. You can make the amount that you want. Change out the bread, try cinnamon raisin, sourdough bread.  Use raspberries, or blueberries, any fruit that is season.  I didn't make the syrup. That would be hard for me, I am a maple syrup Maine girl.  This is creamy and filling. I am adding this to my collection of make agains.  Enjoy

Strawberry-Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast
Paula Deen
Serves 4-6

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp sugar
8 ounces of cream cheese (softened)
12 slices of white bread
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

Strawberry Syrup:

3 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup granulated sugar
Zest and juice of one lemon
In a pie plate add the eggs, milk and sugar and mix together. Lay out the bread and spread each side with the softened cream cheese. Lay the sliced strawberries evenly on one side of the bread and lay the other half on top of the strawberries. Press around the outer edge to seal the two slices together.

Prepare the Strawberry Syrup: In a medium saucepan, add all the ingredients and bring this to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the berries are reduced by 1/3 to 1/2 in volume.
Prepare your grill with Pam spray. Lay each sandwich in the egg mixture and allow to set for a bit so as to absorb the egg mixture. Grill until golden brown then flip over and grill the other side. Serve with the Strawberry syrup or maple syrup.
