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.
