1 1/2 cups milk

2 eggs, beaten

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

8 (2-inch) thick slices bread

2 bananas, very thinly sliced

1 cup strawberries, very thinly sliced

4 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup powdered sugar

Maple syrup


  1. Combine milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla in a shallow bowl. Set aside.
  2. For assembly, spread a thin layer of the cream cheese onto 1 side of the bread slices. Top half the slices with the fruit. Place another piece of bread on top, cream cheese side down, creating a sandwich.
  3. Preheat a griddle to 350 degrees F. Lightly brush with the butter.
  4. Give the milk mixture a quick stir, and dip the sandwiches into the batter, coating all sides.
  5. Place on the griddle. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, then turn on the edges and cook to brown evenly.
  6. To serve, slice sandwiches in half on the diagonal and transfer to a serving platter. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
