Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1-1/2 cup granulated sugar divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 loaf of your favorite bread sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • zest from 1 orange optional
  • Whipped cream optional

Instructions

  1. Combine the strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar in a medium saucepan. Stir and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Heat over medium heat until warm.
  2. In a small bowl whisk the cornstarch and water. Stir into your strawberry mixture and bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook until just thickened. Remove from heat and set aside for later.
  3. Add the cream cheese, vanilla extract, and 1 cup of sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Whisk for 5 minutes or until fluffy making sure to scrape the sides once for even mixing. Spread a heaping spoonful between two slices of bread.

  5. Serve with the strawberry sauce and fresh whipped cream.
