Ingredients

  • 1

    package (8oz) cream cheese, softened

  • 2

    T. strawberry preserves

  • 1

    T. shredded orange zest

  • 4

    eggs

  • 1

    cup half-and-half

  • 2

    T. frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed

  • 1 1/2

    t. vanilla extract

  • 8

    slices Texas Toast-style bread

  • Strawberry Syrup (I like this one of Erin’s)

  • Butter

  • Sliced fresh strawberries

  • Powdered sugar (optional)

  • 1

    Decorating bag or small sandwich bag

Directions

In a small mixing bowl, stir together softened cream cheese, strawberry preserves and orange zest until smooth. Set aside. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, orange juice concentrate and vanilla extract. Pour into a shallow bowl or pie plate. Set aside. With a paring or serrated knife, very carefully slice a pocket into the side of each bread slice (do not cut all the way through the bread). It’s okay if you accidentally cut through the side of the bread a little, just do you best. Using a good quality bread and knife will make this task easier. Fill pocket with a heaping spoonful of cream cheese mixture. I have found that the easiest way to add the cream cheese mixture for me is to spoon it into a decorating bag (typically used for icing cupcakes) and insert it into the pocket that way. If you don’t have any decorating bags, a small hole cut in the bottom corner of a plastic sandwich bag should do the trick as well. If you have any leftover cream cheese, save it for later as a delicious smeare on bagels, crackers, etc! Pull out your favorite griddle or skillet. Carefully dip filled bread in egg mixture and brown for 1-2 minutes per side or until cooked. Serve hot with butter, strawberry syrup, sliced fresh strawberries and powdered sugar. Makes 4 servings.
