- 6 Eggs
- 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
- 3/4 cup Whole Milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated Cinnamon

Lay bread slices out to dry an hour before prepping.
In a rimmed baking dish, whisk together the eggs, cream, milk, vanilla and spices. Heat a griddle or large non stick pan over medium with a few tablespoons of butter. Begin to dredge the bread in the egg mixture making sure to thoroughly coat on both sides.
Add a few pieces of soaked bread to the pan making sure not to overcrowd. Cook for 2 minutes or until golden and crispy on the first side. Flip and continue to cook on the second side for 2 more minutes or until golden. Remove to a plate and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Cook remaining pieces of toast.
Serve two pieces of toast with a drizzle of strawberry sauce and your choice of toppings along with crispy bacon. Note: If making a larger batch you can keep cooked toast warm on a baking sheet covered with foil in a warming oven.
Chop half of the strawberries and combine with the sugar, lemon juice and salt in a medium sauce pot. Cook over medium heat, mashing with a potato masher until coarse but juicy. Allow mixture to cook for 4 to 5 minutes just to thicken slightly.
Meanwhile, slice the remaining strawberries. Add the sliced strawberries to the pot once the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Serve warm.
