My son wanted something different to eat and I wanted to surprise him with something special. So off to the kitchen I went and just started to throw things together and the results were amazing! You can use probably any fresh fruit you would like with this. I preferred to use strawberries as that is my son's favorite and mine too. These came out with just a hint of sweetness, which in my book just a hint is just fine with me. You can adjust it to your liking of course. My son definitely wants these more often now! Try these for breakfast or even dessert!

I could just eat the filling for this stuffed French toast recipe by the spoonful. It has just the right amount of sweetness and the lemon juice is perfect to add a slight tartness. This is an impressive French toast recipe to serve at a special occasion or brunch. I used strawberries this time, but can't wait to try it with other fruit. The Test Kitchen
