Am I late with the whole strawberry and lemon combo? It just turned Fall, so I feel that it`s out of place. But, this can`t wait until next year. 😛 Plus, the holidays are coming and this French toast will make a delicious breakfast or brunch on a holiday morning. I mean, who wouldn`t love a cheery breakfast dish on a gloomy Winter morning (or late afternoon), right? Right.
Yeah, I totally rationalized to myself and you about why I`m posting this. (I have a degree in psychology, so I unconsciously analyze these things. Whoops, did it again. Haha!)
I used fresh strawberries, but frozen would work just as well. So, this recipe is not confined to just the Spring and Summer months.
I love this recipe because it`s so simple. French toast isn`t complicated in the first place. It`s only complicated for me because I don`t have stale challah or brioche bread lying around. However, I do have sandwich bread!
Sandwich bread slices make for great stuffed French toast. I`ve made them many times and always love the results. If you cut them up, you make little, cute bites! Who doesn`t love cute foods? Let me tell you, I love cute foods and I`m in my 20s! If you have children, I have no doubt they`ll love these French toast bites as well!
I`ve learned that using an oven to keep your French toast warm while you work on other batches is a great tip. Not only does the oven keep it warm, it puffs them up as well!
Easy, cute, and yummy breakfast is always a must-try. 🙂 Drizzle with some maple syrup or dust with powdered sugar (or both, like me!) and you`re set to go.
Yum, yum, yum. Sprinkle, sprinkle!
I liked my bites smaller than bigger.
