Happy Mother's Day Breakfast

Happy Mother's Day to all!  I woke up this morning to my sweet daughter and sons making me breakfast in bed...well they made me stay in bed until they were done.  It was super sweet to hear them in the kitchen, but what they made was even sweeter!  I thought I would share their newest creation...Lemon Strawberry Stuffed French Toast.  Yes...hard to believe that three kids came up with something so yummy!

Lemon Strawberry Stuffed Crust French Toast

1 Loaf of Texas Toast
3 Eggs
Vanilla Soy Milk
Real Vanilla
Fresh Sliced Strawberry
2 Packages Cream Cheese
1 Lemon
1 Cup Powder Sugar

Mix vanilla soy milk (or whole milk if you would rather have milk...I love the soy because of the vanilla and richness), 3 eggs and 1 tablespoon of vanilla with a whisk or in a blender and pour into a shallow dish.  Heat a griddle and lightly grease with butter.  

Dip pieces of Texas toast into the egg/milk mixture and place on griddle until they are slightly or golden brown.  Butter each side.  Keep warm in a 250 degree oven or cover with tin foil until you are ready to assemble.

To make the filling place in mixer cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and the juice of one lemon and 1 teaspoon of lemon zest. Wash and slice strawberries.

To assemble spread one heaping tablespoon of cream cheese filling onto a slice of lightly browned french toast.  Place sliced strawberries on top of filling and top with another slice of cooked french toast.  Place on griddle and cook one minute per side and then lightly dust with powdered sugar.  Serve with sliced strawberries.

My Little Chefs

So Happy Mother's day to all the mother's in my life and all of the women who have inspired me to be a better mother...and who frankly let me know that is is alright to be human in this biggest of all jobs...being a Mom.  

My last few posts have been focused on food a family, which seems to come in waves and now its time to get back to the fabric roses and a new quilt and pillow pattern I am making for summer....time to quit eating and get to my sewing room...well maybe tomorrow!
