Ingredients

French Toast:

  • 1 Pullman Loaf 1 1/2 inch thick slices - 12 slices
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3/4 cup Whole Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated Nutmeg
  • pinch of Salt
  • Butter for frying
  • Whipped Cream to garnish
  • Maple Syrup to garnish
  • Powdered Sugar to garnish
  • Turkey Sausage to serve

For the Strawberry Topping:

  • 1 pound Strawberries hulled and divided
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • pinch of Salt

Instructions

For the French Toast:

  • 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.

For the Strawberry Topping:

  • 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.
