I figured it's simple enough with just the photos. It's more of an inspiration and I had the pastry cream on hand from the cream puffs I made earlier in the week which were thawed out from a party earlier in June haha, so a lot of recycling going on! I love that about food!

For the pastry cream recipe: http://www.adventuressheart.com/2011/06/strawberry-picking-party.html

For the ganache recipe: http://www.marthastewart.com/865175/ganache

1 store bought loaf of bread, cut into thick slices. Or use brioche. Cut a slice in the bottom as the picture shows for the stuffing later.

Eggs (depends on how many you're making)

Beat eggs, add a bit of cream to it and soak bread in it as if you're making french toast.

Fry the bread in butter until golden.

Let them cool briefly, use a pastry bag filled with the pastry cream or use a spoon to fill the french toast.

Cover or drizzle the top of the toast with ganache.

Serve.
