Strawberry Basil Stuffed French Toast

Monica H


This is especially good with the tastes of strawberry and basil. Lemon basil is extra delish (versus regular basil). I cannot find lemon basil in many stores, but I am lucky because a friend grows her own and she gave me some! Also, I use non-stick cooking spray AND a non-stick pan because dried egg is one of my least favorite things to clean up, so using both is like double-protection!
