Strawberry Cream Cheese Toasted Breakfast Sandwich

    34 minutes

    I first made this for my mum for Mother's Day three years ago. She will never let me cook her anything else for the occasion. Sweet strawberries, cream cheese, chocolate and pink champagne make for a perfect girly breakfast! Serve with the reserved champagne mixed with fresh champagne and garnished with strawberries.

    Serves: 4 

    • 500g strawberries, sliced
    • 400ml pink champagne or sparkling wine
    • 250g cream cheese
    • 200g white chocolate, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
    • 2 tablespoons of fresh orange juice
    • 8 slices raisin toast
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • ½ cup maple syrup

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:4min  ›  Ready in:34min 

    1. Place the strawberries in a bowl with the sparkling wine and let marinate at least 20 minutes. Drain the strawberries, reserving the sparkling wine. Set aside 1/2 cup of strawberries for a garnish.
    2. Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese, white chocolate, orange rind and orange juice in a separate bowl; stir and blend until smooth.
    3. Spread 4 slices of raisin bread with the cream cheese mixture. Arrange the drained strawberries over the cream cheese. Top with remaining 4 slices of raisin bread to make sandwiches.
    4. Melt the butter in a large frypan over medium heat. Place the sandwiches in the frypan; cook until lightly toasted on each side, about 2 minutes per side.
    5. Place the toasted sandwiches on serving plates, and cut in half. Drizzle evenly with maple syrup, and garnish with remaining strawberries.

    These are fantastic!!!! I hope everyone enjoys this recipe. Just a few notes to make them perfect: Watch the heat of the skillet as the bread toasts really quickly, never walk away as you will probably burn them. Turn the heat to approx medium, if not a little less. If you keep it low you can cook them a little longer without burning the bread and the cream cheese mix will go all creamy and gooey! Yummmmmmm I made these without the pink champagne the other morning as we didn’t have any on hand and the bottle shop wasn't open. They were just as good! Enjoy!  -  16 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Oh, my! Absolutely delicious! I did alter the recipe though. I am not a fan of sparling wine, so I simply sat the strawberries in some water with sugar. I didn't have an orange, so I omitted the orange zest. Added everything else. It was a dream brunch. I'll be having some this coming weekend.  -  26 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    What a great recipe! I made this for a bridal brunch we had for work and everyone loved it. It was something different from the usual fare of eggs and meat. It was very refreshing. The previous poster was correct about watching closely as it's toasting. I did the prep work the night before. I did marinate in red sparkling grape juice instead of champagne and it was tasty. Let mixture come to room temp before spreading if prepared night before.  -  10 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
