Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam or preserves
  • 1 container (7 1/2 ounces) strawberry flavored or plain whipped cream cheese, softened
  • 1 loaf (14 ounces) French brioche, cut in 2-inch slices (about 4 slices)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, salted or unsalted
  • Step 1

    To install grill grate, slide it in the front of the base so it hooks in, then press down on the back until it clicks into place. Place griddle on top of grill grate so it sits flat. Close the hood. Select BBQ GRIDDLE, set temperature to 400°F, and set time to 7 minutes. Press the dial to begin preheating (preheating will take approximately 10 minutes).

  • Step 2

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, heavy cream, eggs, and vanilla, then set aside. In a small bowl, swirl the strawberry jam into the cream cheese. Place mixture into a piping bag or plastic bag with the corner cut off.

  • Step 3

    Cut a 2- to 3-inch opening in the base of each slice of bread. Using your fingers, open the hole wide enough to fit the piping bag and gently squeeze the cream cheese mixture into the bread until just full. Pinch the bread together to close the seam. Repeat with remaining pieces of bread.

  • Step 4

    When unit beeps to signal it has preheated, open hood and place butter on the griddle. Use a rubber spatula to move butter around griddle surface. Dip one piece of bread in the egg mixture, submerging to cover, then remove and place on griddle. Repeat with remaining pieces of bread. Leave hood open to begin cooking.

  • Step 5

    When the timer shows 4 minutes remaining, use silicone-tipped tongs or spatula to flip bread. Leave hood open and cook for 1 minute. When timer shows 3 minutes remaining, close hood to continue cooking.

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, open hood, remove French toast, and serve warm with your favorite syrup!
