1 loaf White Bread or Brioche
5 Eggs
1 cup Milk
1/3 cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
8 oz Cream Cheese, room temperature
1/3-1/2 cup Brown Sugar
Butter

1. Mix the cream cheese and brown sugar together using a fork. Set aside. Beat the eggs, milk, vanilla, and sugar together in a shallow bowl or pie plate. Set aside.
2. Cut the bread into thick 1 inch slices. Make a pocket in the bread by slicing into the top in the middle. (Or you can use two regular slices of bread and spread the cream cheese between the two slices.)
3. Stuff the bread pocket with 1-2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture, dip the stuffed bread into the egg mixture coating well on both sides.
4. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium-low to medium heat. Lightly butter the pan and fry the french toast on both sides until golden brown. Serve with Strawberry-Rhubarb Syrup. Enjoy!
