The French serve French toast more for dessert, than breakfast using French bread as well as day-old brioche and croissants for the bread. This variation is prepared with French bread that soaks overnight and is then baked rather than fried.
If you are serving this French toast to strawberry lovers, prepare it with strawberry cream cheese instead of the pineapple cream cheese.
Use a serrated bread knife to easily cut through the bread slices. Slice off and discard the loaf ends so each slice will readily soak up the egg mixture.
Enjoy this recipe with crisp bacon strips and freshly squeezed orange juice.
