Although this sounds more like a dessert, indulge in this delicious
treat for breakfast.
Cut through each slice of bread horizontally to form a pocket,
not cutting all the way through. Stuff half of the chocolate chips
and half of the strawberry preserves into each pocket along with
one Tbs. of softened cream cheese.
In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla
and cinnamon. Add the filled bread and allow to soak for 5-10 minutes.
In a heavy skillet or griddle, heat butter until the foam subsides.
Add bread, turning frequently until crisp and golden. Transfer to
heated places and dust with powdered sugar. Serve with Mandarin
Orange Strawberry Sauce (recipe below)
