Whip this up for mom and she'll love you forever!  Recipe found  here:

Fraise {Strawberry} French Toast

8oz Ricotta Cheese

8 oz Cream Cheese

1 Jar strawberry ice cream topping

2 Tbsp powdered sugar

1 Loaf sour dough bread, sliced thick

3 Eggs

½ cup milk

1 tsp cinnamon sugar mixture

½ stick butter

Fresh strawberries for topping


Combine ricotta and cream cheese until smooth. Add ¼ cup ice cream topping. Add 2 Tbsp powdered sugar. Set aside. Mix together in a small bowl, the cinnamon/sugar, milk, and eggs. Set aside. Spread each slice of bread with about 3-4 Tbsp of the strawberry cheese mixture. Press two slices together to form a sandwich. Dip the sandwich into the milk and egg mixture. Heat half the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until melted. Carefully, add the French toast. Cook until lightly brown on each side, about 3-5 minutes. Remove to plate and let cool slightly. Top the French toast with more more strawberry ice cream topping, fresh strawberries, and powdered sugar.
