Cherry Cheesecake French Toast

Dessert for breakfast? Oui s’il vous plait! Spoil yourself with this luxurious stack of Cherry Cheesecake French Toast. We start by using Lifeway Kefir in the batter to give the French Toast a fluffy, buttery center. This is already amazing, but then we go ahead and take it a step further. With Lifeway Farmer Cheese, we create a probiotic-packed cheesecake spread, taking this breakfast to new heights. We add maraschino cherries for their signature sweet-sour flavor and drizzle a little maple syrup on top to bring it to perfection.
