Strawberry and Ricotta Stuffed French Toast

I am a pancake person - give me lots of syrup and some fruit on top. And eggs should be savory. But one bite of these and I have a second favorite. I have to say this was an experiment to see how well I could make French toasts and if I would like them with all my favorite things inside. It is inspired by many TV recipes and features so it is difficult to say where TV ends and I start... So here it is... 

Ingredients:

4 thick slices bread
4-6 strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/4 cup (2 tablespoons) ricotta
1 teaspoon sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon milk (or half n half)
Dash of vanilla
Few grates of orange rind
Butter to cook 
Syrup of choice - I like butter and maple

Beat the eggs, milk, vanilla and orange rind together. Keep aside. 
Mix the ricotta with the sugar. Spread half a tablespoon of this ricotta mix on one side of the bread. Arrange strawberry slices on top. Cover with another slice of bread which is spread with half tablespoon ricotta on the inside. Soak in the egg mixture.
Heat a non-stick pan and apply a little butter on it. Place the egg soaked bread on the pan and cook on low heat till the egg is done. Flip and cook the egg on the other side as well. 
Remove from heat, sprinkle some powdered sugar, drizzle some syrup and gobble gobble gobble...

I am sending this to Srivalli's Sandwich Mela...
