Ingredients (2 Sandwiches)

  • 1/2 lb. (Approx. 8 strawberries), hulled and sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 4 Slices brioche or challa bread
  • 4 oz. Cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1/4 Cup whole milk or half and half
  • Butter for sauteing
  • Powdered sugar for serving

Instructions

Add the sliced strawberries and 2 tablespoons of sugar to a bowl and let sit for about 15 minutes to macerate.

In a separate bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth. Spread the mixture equally on each slice of bread, spoon two of the slices with about a quarter of the sugared strawberries each and top with the remaining slices of bread.

Beat the egg and milk together in a shallow bowl and dip both sandwiches into the mixture. Turn over and dip the other side as well.

Melt butter in a large skillet and add the dipped sandwiches. Saute for a few minutes on each side until the bread is a light golden brown. Serve warm with a dusting of powdered sugar.
