How to make french toast topped with fresh strawberries


For this recipe you will need:

  • Whole wheat sandwich bread, sliced (I like homemade the best!)
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Olive Oil
  • Butter (optional for topping)
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Maple Syrup

I make my own sandwich bread, and get my eggs, milk, and butter from local farms.

For the vanilla extract, olive oil, and cinnamon, I buy them from Thrive Market and have them delivered to my house. They carry organic and sustainable brands at great prices. I am excited to be a Thrive affiliate, and to offer you the great deal below if you’d like to join Thrive Market!

Where can I get fresh, local, organic strawberries?

Strawberries just started to ripen here in Michigan right around the summer solstice.

I recommend visiting a local u-pick farm to pick your strawberries yourself, this is a super fun activity for kids too!

Or you can go to a local farmers market or farm stand that sells local strawberries.

Try to find strawberries grown using organic and sustainable farming practices for the best quality and taste.

To make this dish year round, freeze fresh strawberries in early summer when they are ready for harvest. Check out my blog post “How to freeze strawberries” to learn how, and enjoy the taste of summer all year!

Simply thaw the strawberries in the fridge for a few hours or out on the counter for a few minutes before making the french toast recipe if you are using frozen strawberries.
