Strawberry & Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

Guys were having Shake N Bake pork chops last night and I am not a fan, so took advantage of being able to make myself French Toast for dinner.   Found some frozen strawberries that were left from picking this summer and we have an overabundance of cream cheese at the moment.     

Totally hit the spot!
