Ingredients

  • 1 loaf Brioche bread sliced
  • 6 Eggs room temperature
  • 1 ¼ cups Milk
  • ¾ cups Brown sugar 
  • 1 cup Strawberry preserves
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 tbsp Powdered sugar for garnish
  • Strawberries for garnish

Instructions

  • Spray a 9x13 baking pan with oil and place each piece of bread into the pan, laying one piece on top of the next. 
  • Whisk together eggs, milk, brown sugar, ½ cup of strawberry jam, vanilla extract, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Pour on top of bread and press bread down to ensure the bread is submerged in the custard. Mix together remaining strawberry preserves with cream cheese and dollop on top of the bread. Smear cream mixture on top of each piece of bread. Cover with plastic wrap. Let the bread sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, optimally 3 hours to overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the top is golden and crisp. Of note, the french toast will swell while baking but will deflate and flatten while cooling.
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar and add strawberries on top.
