2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar

8 ounces cream cheese

12 slices white bread

1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

Butter, for cooking

Maple syrup, for serving

Strawberry Syrup, for serving, recipe follows

Confectioners' sugar, for serving

Strawberry Syrup:

3 cups sliced strawberries

1 cup granulated sugar

Zest and juice of 1 lemon


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and granulated sugar. Spread the cream cheese on half of the bread slices and top with strawberries. Top with the remaining 6 bread slices and press around the edges to seal.
  2. Melt butter on a griddle over medium-low heat. Dip the sandwiches in the egg mixture for a few seconds on each side. Cook the sandwiches until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve with maple syrup, Strawberry Syrup, or confectioners' sugar.

Strawberry Syrup:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the strawberries are soft and the syrup is thickened and reduced by 1/3 to 1/2 in volume, 15 to 18 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature before serving.

Cook’s Note

If a thinner syrup is desired, strain the hot syrup through a fine mesh strainer into a clean container and let cool.
