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!

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.
