Berry Delicious French Toast

I can't say enough good about these Berry Delicious French Toast. Its amazing what a little 
variety can do to a plain old piece of "french toast". This french toast would make the perfect
breakfast for Christmas morning or just on any ol' day of the week. Its MOUTH WATERING good!

Berry Delicious French Toast
4 eggs
2 c. heavy cream
1 t. vanilla
2 T. sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 loaf dense bread (french or homemade works best)

Filling:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz whipped topping
1 c. powdered sugar
1 c. frozen (but thawed) mixed berries, drained well

Slice bread into 1/2" thick slices. Set aside. Mix top 5 ingredient together in a mixing bowl. Set aside. For filling: Mix everything EXCEPT the berries. Whip until completely combined. Add berries. Stir until combined. Spread desired amount of filling on one slice of bread. Place a top piece of bread onto bread with filling...making a sandwich.Preheat griddle or frying pan to a medium heat. Spray pan with cooking spray. Dip "sandwiches" into egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides. Place "sandwich" into hot pan. Cook for 2-4 minutes (depending on how fast it cooks and how done you like your french toast). Flip over and cook for another 2-4 minutes. Repeat until all french toast is done. Serve with berry syrup (Berry Syrup recipe below) and a dollop of "filling" mixture. 

Berry Syrup:
2 1/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. water
3 c. frozen berries

Combine sugar and water into sauce pan. Stir to combine. Add berries and bring to a boil. Boil for 5-7 minutes or until syrup thickens, stir constantly (it won't be SUPER thick, but thick none-the-less). Serve on top of Berry Delicious French Toast.
