Strawberry and Chocolate Stuffed French Toast

I wanted breakfast for supper and wanted to be inspired. I saw a recipe with this title, read it and then made it my own with what I had at home. Verdict? YUMMY!

8 slices sandwich bread ( I used whole grain)
3 large eggs
1 C of milk ( I could have used 1/2 a cup and it would have been sufficient)
4 T cream cheese
4 T semi sweet chocolate chips
8 oz strawberries, sliced ( I only had 5, but 8 would have been better.)
powdered sugar for sprinkling

Spread 1 T of cream cheese on 4 slices of bread, then sprinkle each of the 4 slices with 1 T of chocolate chips. Place enough strawberry slices to cover the slice of bread. Place the 4 remaining slices of bread on top to form sandwich. Combine milk and eggs. Preheat skillet. Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture until sufficiently coated. ( If you like your french toast soggy, use the full cup of milk and soak the sandwich until saturated.) Cook 3-4 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Devour!
