  • 1
    1 Pullman Loaf (1 1/2 inch thick slices - 12 slices)
    Lay bread slices out to dry an hour before prepping.
  • 2
    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
    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.

    Whipped Cream to garnish
    Maple Syrup to garnish
    Powdered Sugar to garnish
    Crispy Bacon to serve
    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.
  • 5
    1 pound Strawberries (hulled and divided)
    1/4 cup Sugar
    1 Lemon (juiced)
    pinch of Salt
    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.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. A Pullman loaf is a type of white bread, similar to a country loaf. You can find them at your local bakery or most grocery stores. Any thick slices of bread will also work.
    2. Let the French toast become golden brown on one side before flipping it.
    3. Reserve half of the chopped strawberries and add them to the finished sauce for texture.
    4. If your toast is thick enough, you can cut a slit in it and stuff it with the strawberries!
