Ingredients

  • One  16-ounce box strawberries, quartered
  • 3/4  Cups  chopped hazelnuts
  • 1  Cup  milk
  • eggs
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  nutmeg
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1/2  Tablespoon  unsalted butter

Directions

Chop the strawberries and hazelnuts. Set aside.

 

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs. Stir in the cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined.

 

Melt the butter in a large skillet. Coating the pan evenly. One at a time, cover both sides of a slice of bread with the egg-milk mixture and place it in skillet.

French Toast Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

French Toast Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
