Strawberry French Toast:

3 cups Strawberries, quartered (and divided)

Zest of 1 Lemon

Juice from 1/2 lemon

1 cup Jam (strawberry preferred)

1 loaf Brioche, Challah, or French bread, cut into cubes

6 large Eggs

1 cup Milk

1/2 cup Heavy Cream

1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

1/4 cup Honey

1/2 teaspoon Salt

Vanilla Bean Whip Cream:

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

2 Tablespoons Sugar

1 Vanilla Bean, sliced down the center and seeds scraped

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Maple Syrup + Powdered Sugar, for serving


Strawberry French Toast:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together 1 cup of strawberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, and jam, set aside.
    Preheat oven to 350 F.
    Place bread cubes onto a large baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until toasty and lightly golden.
    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, heavy cream, vanilla extract, honey, and salt.
    Place the bread cubes into a large casserole dish and pour egg mixture evenly over the top. Dollop bread-egg mixture evenly with strawberry jam mixture. Cover overnight French Toast and refrigerate overnight. (Or, if you are short on time, a minimum of 30 minutes).
    Preheat oven to 350 F. Remove casserole dish from refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Uncover and bake overnight French Toast for 35-45 minutes, or until tops are golden brown. Serve with vanilla bean whip cream, maple syrup, and powdered sugar.

Vanilla Bean Whip Cream:

  1. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla bean seeds, and vanilla extract on medium-high speed until medium peaks form, about 3-4 minutes.
