  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8 Pieces French Toast 1x
  • Category: Breakfast


Thick sliced buttery brioche soaked in a rich cinnamon custard, fried to golden perfection, and topped with an easy homemade strawberry jam and whipped vanilla cream cheese. 



For the Brioche French Toast

  • 8 Slices Thick Cut Brioche
  • 3 Lg Eggs
  • 1 C Heavy Cream
  • 1 TBSP Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Salt

For the Strawberry Jam

  • 2 C Fresh Strawberries, diced
  • 2 TBSP Water
  • 2 TBSP Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Cornstarch slurry – 1 tsp cornstarch + 2 tsp Water

For the Whipped Vanilla Cream Cheese

  • 4 oz (1/2 Block) Cream Cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 C Granulated Sugar
  • 23 TBSP Heavy Cream

*Maple Syrup, optional


For the Brioche French Toast

  • In a 9X13 Pan whisk together the eggs, cream, salt, and cinnamon until smooth and no clumps of egg whites remain – 2-3 minutes
  • Soak 4 sliced of brioche at a time, for 10 minutes per side.
  • Once soaked, cook on medium low on a griddle greased with butter. Cook low and slow, for about 5-6 minutes per side. 

For the Strawberry Jam

  • In a medium saucepan combine all ingredients (minus the cornstarch slurry) and cook on medium for 10 minutes, or until the strawberries start to break down and the sugar dissolves.
  • Bring to a low boil, then stir in the cornstarch slurry. Cook for 1 minute, then remove from heat. It will thicken as it cools.

For the Whipped Vanilla Cream Cheese

  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer for 3-4 minutes or until smooth.
  • Add the vanilla and sugar and beat for another 3 minutes, until the sugar dissolves.
  • Add in the cream 1 TBSP at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Top french toast with the whipped vanilla cream cheese and strawberry jam. Add a drizzle of maple syrup if you’re feeling wild. Enjoy.
