  2. Spread the cream cheese on half of the bread slices and top with strawberries. 
  3. Top with the remaining 6 bread slices to make a sandwich.
  4. Press down to make a tight seal.
  5. Melt butter or oil on a griddle or skillet  over medium-low heat.
  6. Dip the sandwiches in the egg mixture , coating all sides. 
  7. Place sandwich on the griddle and cook  until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
