I serve this dish with bacon or maple flavored sausage links. This is my number one request at the Metamora Inn.
One loaf of Challah, French, or any type of bread you prefer
one 8 oz package cream cheese
8 fresh large eggs
1 cup half and half ( use milk if you prefer)
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
½ Teaspoon cinnamon
dash of salt
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
butter for the grill or skillet
1 pint of fresh strawberries or more if you prefer
whipped topping of your choice ( I use the spray can type)
powdered sugar for garnishing
approximately half cup granulated sugar for the berries
Wash and slice strawberries the night before and add granulated sugar to taste. Leave in fridge overnight . A syrup will form from the sugar and juice of the berries.
Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature for easier spreading. It is a good idea to use day old bread or slice your bread in ¾ inch slices the night before and lay out to dry. Spread softened cream cheese on bread and place second piece on top. (just like making a sandwich) and lay aside while making the egg batter.
Beat together eggs, half and half, sugar, cinnamon, salt and vanilla until blended well. Dip the cream cheese sandwiches into the egg batter making sure each side is completely saturated. This only takes a few seconds on each side. Have your grill or heavy skillet already heated to a medium low temperature using a little Pam spray first and enough butter to coat the skillet. Cook each side to a golden brown. It is important to cook this slowly and use a heavy skillet or grill.
Place in dish, slice diagonally and place in a pleasing manner for presentation. Add sweetened strawberries, whipped cream and powdered sugar.
I received the ultimate compliment from a recent visitor from Atlanta, GA. A gentleman who was part of a gospel quartet , loved my Hash Brown Casserole and stated at the breakfast table, ” When we all get to Heaven and sit down at that great banquet table with the Lord, this Hash Brown [...]
