I love french toast, but don’t like making it the regular way because by the time I get to sit down to eat, everyone else is usually already done! I have made several other overnight baked recipes that have been delicious but are really sweet. I have also tried a few recipes that end up being a little bit soggy, even after they are baked which I am not a big fan of! This recipe has a touch of sweetness with the cream cheese and cream topping (which is the most delicious whipped cream I’ve ever tasted!), but it isn’t too rich or sweet (making it easier to eat more)! I was also very excited to find that the end result was not soggy at all – it bakes perfectly!
Overnight Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast
Slice a loaf of french bread into 1 inch slices and then spread cream cheese between each set of 2 slices, making little cream cheese sandwiches. Place the sandwiches in a greased 9X13 pan.
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Beat the mixture for a couple of minutes and then pour it over the bread and let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then turn the sandwiches over. Cover pan and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes.
Amaretto Cream Topping
1 pint whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. amaretto or almond flavoring (I used almond and it made the whipping cream sooooo yummy! I will be adding this every time I make whipped cream in the future!)
Serve french toast with strawberries (sugared if you prefer) and the whipped topping. Enjoy!
