Ingredients

  • One 16-ounce box strawberries, quartered
  • 3/4 Cups chopped hazelnuts
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 loaf wheat bread, sliced
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

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. If you can fit 2 slices in your skillet, do 2 at a time. Cook both sides of the bread until dark brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Continue until you're out of bread.

 

To serve, top the toast with the strawberry and hazelnut mix, and dust with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
