The Ultimate French Toast with Strawberries

Had some strawberries in the refrigerator and thought I'd add them to my french toast. I decided to add a sauce made with balsamic vinegar and honey instead of using syrup. Well, I'll be using this again; that's for sure. My sweetie and I along with a house guest we had over the weekend love the taste it gave the toast and berry combination.

8 slice
whole wheat bread
1/4 c
honey
1/4 c
balsamic vinegar
1/2 lb
strawberries
6
eggs
1/3 c
milk
1/4 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
sliced or slivered toasted almonds
1 c
vanilla yogurt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the almonds in a non-stick pan over med-high heat and toast. Watch not to burn them.
2
Remove from stove and set aside.
3
Add the balsamic vinegar and honey in a sauce pan over medium heat and reduce by about half or until you see that the bubbles start to thicken.
4
Slice your strawberries into a bowl and pour the reduction over them using a spatula; toss well and set aside.
5
Add the eggs, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, and milk to a large bowl that is wide enough to dip the bread into.
6
Whisk together so that everything is well blended.
7
Dip the bread in the egg mixture on both sides so that it soaks up the batter.
8
Bring your non-stick flat grill or non-stick frying pan to medium heat with a little butter just until the butter foams.
9
Add the battered bread and cook on both sides until they are golden brown.
10
Repeat with other bread slices.
11
Top 2 slices of french toast with a few tablespoons of the strawberries along with some of the juice they gave off.
12
Place a dollop of the yogurt on top and sprinkle on the toasted almonds.
13
Serve hot.
