Ingredients

How to make it

  • With a sharp knife, cut a pocket into the side of each slice of bread -- cutting almost, but not quite all the way, to the edges.
  • Spread the inside of each pocket with 1 tbsp. (15 mL) of the cream cheese, stuff with 1 tbsp. (15 mL) of the chocolate chips and spoon in 1 tbsp. (15 mL) of the strawberry jam.
  • Depending on the size of the pocket and the slice of bread, you may not be able to use the full amount of stuffing ingredients -- just play it by ear and use as much as will fit inside.
  • Squash the bread closed to enclose the filling.
  • In a bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla. and nutmeg
  • Dip the stuffed bread slices into the egg mixture, turning to soak both sides evenly.
  • Arrange on a plate.
  • In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the stuffed bread to the pan and cook, turning each slice over several times to let it brown evenly and allow the heat to penetrate and melt the chocolate -- about 5 or 6 minutes total.
  • Dust lightly with icing sugar and serve with powdered sliced fresh strawberries and maple syrup.
  • Servings: 2
  • How kids can help:
  • Help stuff the bread slices with chocolate, strawberries and cream cheese.
  • Dip the stuffed bread into the egg mixture.
