Step by Step Instructions

Here are step-by-step photos and instructions on how to make this overnight brioche bread recipe!

STEP 1: Make the cream cheese filling. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla bean paste. Use an electric mixer to cream until fully combined and smooth.

STEP 2: Assemble the French toast. Spread a generous amount of the cream cheese filling onto one side of each brioche slice. Arrange an even layer of strawberries on half of the slices, then sandwich with the paired brioche slices. Set aside.

STEP 3: Make the milk egg mixture. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt until fully combined.

STEP 4: Soak the stuffed French toast & cook. Dip each stuffed brioche into the milk, egg mixture, fully coating the sides, as well. Add a small pat of butter to the pan, then add the stuffed brioche. Once the brioche is evenly golden, after about 2-3 minutes, flip over onto the other side. Don’t forget the sides of the brioche too! Repeat with the remaining stuffed brioche.

Top each strawberries & cream stuffed french toast with whipped cream, more fresh strawberries, and maple syrup.
