- 2 large
- eggs , beaten
- 1/2 c
- 2 dash(es)
- each cinnamon, nutmeg
- scant pinch of salt
- 1 Tbsp
- vanilla extract
- 8 slice
- whole wheat bread
- creamy peanutbutter
- 1 pt
- whole strawberries
- 2 Tbsp
- maple syrup
1Mix together all your french toast ingredients (except the bread and peanutbutter)
2On four slices of wheat bread, spread peanut butter to desired thickness - place second slice of bread on top and trim off the crusts. Pinch all four sides together to form a "pillow" so peanut butter doesn't leak out while toasting
3Dip into egg mixture on both sides, making sure bread absorbs it then place onto preheated buttered frying pan. Toast on both sides, and repeat with the other sandwiches.
4Reserving about 6 or 7 of the strawberries, hull, wash and place the rest of the strawberries in a blender with the maple syrup and blend on high till all the berries are pureed.
5With the remainder of the strawberries, hull and slice (I use an egg slicer for uniform slices) then add the pureed strawberries.
6To serve, place two of the peanutbutter sandwiches on a plate, top with strawberry syrup and dust lightly with powdered sugar (if desired) Bon Appetit!
