Strawberry French Toast and Home Made Whipped Cream

Who needs an idea for a Valentines day inspired breakfast?!?!  This one is going to make your families really love you!   With the fresh strawberries and the gourmet flavor you can't loose.
I love stuffed french toast!  Every time we go to IHop that is probably what you will see me get.  So a few years ago when this recipe showed up in my Gooseberry Patch Calendar  I knew it was going to be a real winner!   

Strawberry French Toast

8 oz. ricotta cheese
3 T. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
16 slices french bread
2 eggs
1 c. milk
*heavy whipping cream (I get the small containers... about 2 cups)
*1/2 c. granulated sugar (more or less to taste)
sliced strawberries

In a bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.  Spread a little of the mixture over 8 slices of bread and top with remaining bread (like a little french bread sandwich).
Beat eggs and milk together in a dish big enough for the bread to lay in.  Soak the sandwiches in the egg mixture for 30 seconds to a minute on each side and then cook on a hot, greased griddle or pan for a few minutes on each side or until golden brown.  ***In a big bowl mix together the whipping cream and granulated sugar on high with a hand mixer until soft peaks form.  When french toast is done top with whipped cream and sliced strawberries!!  Happy Valentines Breakfast everyone!!
