Prep Time: 45 min Skill Level: Easy


french toast with berriesFruit Filling

1 cup sliced fruit or small berries (Pick Mom's Favorites)
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
2 tablespoons sugar

French Toast

4 thick slices of fresh bread*
1 cup milk
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 egg whites
2 eggs
4 teaspoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 Cup Fresh fruit
1/4 Cup Fruit syrup (warmed to room temperature)


Fruit Filling

1. Mix together the cup of sliced fruit or small berries, the lemon juice and zest and 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Set aside to soak and sweeten the fruit.

French Toast

1. Pre-heat oven to 400F.

2. Combine milk, sugar, vanilla and eggs in a mixing bowl.

3. Beat until frothy foam can be seen - you want to mix the eggs in really well! Put it in the refrigerator for a few minutes until you have the bread ready.

4. Cut the thick bread slices into two thick halves. Just as if you were cutting a sandwich in half.

5. Cut a slit in each of the bread pieces to form a hole for the fruit filling.

6. Put about 1 tablespoon of the fruit filling in each piece of bread and secure the slit with toothpicks to keep the fruit inside. Don't fill them so full that the fruit spills out.

7. Place the filled bread slices in a 13" X 9" baking dish.

8. You're ready for the egg mixture now. Beat it a second time to make sure it's really well mixed and pour half of the egg mixture over the fruit stuffed bread.

9. Flip the bread over and pour the rest of the mixture onto the bread. Make sure that all of the bread is coated. If you missed spots, just flip the bread over again until it is all coated.

10. Chill for 30 minutes flipping the bread pieces about 3 or 4 times while they are chilling. (When you put the bread in to chill take the syrup out to let it warm up.)

11. Grease another 13" X 9" inch baking pan and put the fruit filled bread pieces in this pan.

12. Bake for 3 - 5 minutes or until the top is golden brown then flip them and bake for another 3 - 5 minutes until the top is golden brown.

13. Place two pieces of french toast on each plate.

13. Serve toppped with warm fruit syrup and the rest of the fruits and berries.

If you want to be really fancy, add a bit of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to the top!

Helpful Hints:

* Any fresh loaf of bread will work with this recipe, but the best is a sweet loaf, like Challah bread if your bakery carries it. It not French or Italian bread turns out fine. You can even use a packaged sliced white bread loaf like Wonder Bread, but if you do -- use two slices to make each piece of French Toast and put the fruit in between like a sandwich - hold the two pieces together with toothpicks!
