Ingredients

  • 1 baguette, cut into 24 slices
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • ¼ cup strawberry preserves
  • 6 pieces of thick-cut bacon, cooked until crisp
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup half-and-half
  • 2 cups strawberries, cleaned and sliced
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • butter, for frying

Instructions

  1. Place 12 pieces of bread on a clean surface.
  2. Combine preserves and cream cheese until very well mixed. Spread evenly onto the 12 slices of bread. Place ½ piece of bacon on top. Place remaining 12 pieces of bread over bacon.
  3. In a shallow pan, whisk eggs, half-and-half, vanilla and salt. Place sandwiches into the pan. Set aside for about 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, combine strawberries and granulated sugar in a saucepan. Stir over low heat for about 10 minutes until thick. Set aside to cool.
  5. Carefully turn sandwiches over to allow egg mixture to soak well into the top slice of bread.
  6. Heat butter in a skillet and fry egg-soaked sandwiches as for French toast.
  7. Heat over to 300 degrees. Place browned sandwiches in a lightly greased 9-by-13-inch pan. Bake for about 10 more minutes. Serve with strawberry sauce and powdered sugar.
