Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast

Strawberry cream cheese French toast is a delicious and indulgent breakfast or brunch dish that combines creamy cheese filling with sweet strawberries and French toast. Here’s how to make it:


For the Strawberry Compote:

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup water

For the Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the French Toast:

  • 4 slices of thick bread (such as French or brioche)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Butter or cooking spray for the griddle


Make the Strawberry Compote:

  1. In a saucepan, combine the sliced strawberries, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and water.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries become soft and release their juices. This will take about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Once the mixture thickens slightly and resembles a compote, remove it from the heat and set it aside.

Make the Cream Cheese Filling:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined and smooth. Set aside.

Prepare the French Toast:

  1. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. Spread the cream cheese filling evenly on two slices of bread. Top each with the remaining slices of bread to make sandwiches.
  3. Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture, ensuring both sides are coated.
  4. Heat a griddle or a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add a bit of butter or cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  5. Place the dipped sandwiches on the griddle and cook until they are golden brown on both sides and the cream cheese filling is softened, about 3-4 minutes per side.


  1. Place each cooked French toast sandwich on a plate.
  2. Spoon the strawberry compote over the top of each sandwich.
  3. Optionally, dust with powdered sugar or add a dollop of whipped cream for an extra touch of sweetness.
  4. Serve your strawberry cream cheese French toast hot and enjoy!

This delightful breakfast combines the creaminess of the filling with the sweetness of the strawberry compote and the rich flavor of French toast. It’s perfect for special occasions or when you want to treat yourself to a delicious morning meal.
