The Ultimate French Toast with Strawberries

Norma DeRemer


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.

How to Make The Ultimate French Toast with Strawberries


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