French Toast is a classic breakfast/brunch food. However, it can get really heavy and rich. Fresh strawberries take the place of maple syrup in this recipe, which helps to cut that richness, gives it a brighter taste and makes it healthier as well.
Step 1: What You Need
1/2 cup of milk
Day old bread
2 Tablespoons of sugar
1 big handful of strawberries.
Step 2: Macerate the Strawberries
Start by cutting your strawberries. I cut the tops off mine and then sliced vertically, I think it looks better on the plate. (If you are trying to get more servings out of them, dice them, and that should help them go farther. They probably won't have to sit as long that way as well.)
Top these with the sugar and mix. Set aside until ready to serve.
Step 3: Cut and Dry the Bread
Step 4: The Liquid
Step 5: Dip and Rest
Then set the slices on a drain rack for a few minutes so they can finish absorbing all the milk into their cores.
Step 6: Cook and Plate
Cook your bread until nice and golden brown on both sides.
Plate and top with strawberries and their syrup.
Step 7: Eat!
Here you are, a satisfying, rich, sweet, fresh dish that will help you get going in the morning.
Another thing about strawberries instead of syrup, doesn't it just look so much more beautiful with that pop of red?
