The Best French Toast

This isn’t the healthiest French toast recipe out there.

But, it’s delicious, and it’s a great breakfast for a lazy Saturday morning.

The Best French Toast

4 slices wheat bread
4 jumbo eggs
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp butter, divided into 8 equal pieces
8 large strawberries, sliced
1 tbsp sugar

  1. Combine the eggs, cream, vanilla, and cinnamon. Beat with a fork until smooth.
  2. Combine the sliced strawberries and sugar.
  3. Heat a griddle on medium-low.
  4. Using tongs, dredge each slice of bread in the egg mixture, letting it soak about 30 seconds on each side. Remove to plate.
  5. Heat the oven to warm or 250-degrees. Put two plates in the oven to warm.
  6. Add one piece of butter to the griddle for each slice of bread that will fit. (I did two at a time.)
  7. Cook the bread 2-3 minutes a side, until golden brown. Remove the cooked pieces to the warmed oven, add a pat of butter to the top of each.
  8. Once all the pieces have cooked, remove the plates from the oven (carefully), and top each slice with 1/4 of the strawberries. Dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately.

What? Oh yeah. The whole calorie thing. Blame this lady.
