Serves 4 sandwiches
This is one of my favorite breakfast foods (though we often have it for dinner), modeled after a breakfast they used to serve at Zoe in the W New Orleans. It’s super easy, not heavy, and so tasty. The kids feel like they’re getting away with something when I serve it for dinner.
8 slices of white bread
2 tbsp. milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 container of cream cheese (not whipped), warmed a bit
1 small container of strawberries
1 small container of blueberries
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Maple Syrup (optional)
Melt a pat of butter in a large frying pan on the stove on medium heat. Beat the eggs together with the milk and vanilla. Assemble four sandwiches by spreading a thin layer of cream cheese between 2 slices of white bread. Dip one sandwich in the egg batter on both sides and brown in the frying pan. Flip to brown each side until a golden brown color. Repeat for the other three sandwiches, melting a pat of butter in the frying pan before browning each sandwich.
Slice the strawberries to your preferred thickness, length-wise. On each plate, sprinkle confectioner’s sugar, strawberries, and blueberries. You can serve with or without a bit of maple syrup. Enjoy.
