Stuffed French Toast
3 oz Neufchatel cheese, at room temperature
Combine the chocolate chips and cheese in a small bowl, mix well.
8 slices Italian bread (or whole wheat sandwich bread)
Spread one fourth of the chocolate mixture on 4 slices of the bread. Top each with a second slice and press lightly to form a sandwich.
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp trans-free margarine
Beat together eggs and vanilla in a medium bowl. Dip both sides of each sandwich in the egg mixture.
Melt the margarine in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add sandwiches, one at a time and cook until golden and cooked through.
Serve hot, topped with 2 cups sliced, fresh strawberries.
