"Oh my...this recipe is amazing! I wanted to recreate the Stuffed Cherry French Toast we enjoyed on vacation, and this recipe came pretty close! I reduced the powered sugar in the cream cheese mixture to 3/4 cup and added 1/4 cup of chopped cherries (from the 4 cups of cherries). I used regular white bread instead of Texas toast and added an extra egg yolk to the egg-milk mixture. The recipe took a little more time than some to prepare, but was definitely worth it. As a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home, I highly recommend this recipe!"

"This is a delicious recipe. I ended up using strawberries instead of frozen cherries, but it was still amazing."

"I made this with frozen sliced strawberries and fresh bananas instead of cherries (I added the bananas right before serving) and it was very good."

"This was so good. I didn't have cherries. I had a few fresh blueberries. I spread cream cheese mixture on both sides of bread and placed blueberries in between the slices of bread. Then topped with powdered sugar. Sinfully good!"
