French Toast with Homemade Strawberry Sauce – Recipe

French Toast with Homemade Strawberry Sauce (recipe follows) – French Toast is so delicious by itself, but add some homemade strawberry sauce and you have got something that’s really yummy! :D I love to make this for my family because it makes me feel like I spoil them. I’m not sure why, but they’re always super impressed when I make syrup or these types of sauces from scratch. I guess it’s because most people reach for the bottled kind. It’s really easy to make them at home though. In fact, I can make the whole family (all 7 of us) breakfast-sauce/syrup included in about 15 minutes (provided I use my griddle to cook the French Toast)! I always keep a stock of frozen fruit just for this purpose. I recommend buying fruit when it’s at it’s peak of season and washing, slicing and freezing some. Freezing fruit isn’t always a good thing. I definitely wouldn’t say to use frozen fruit for just anything. In this case though, it won’t hurt the final result. You can use other fruits too like pineapples (garnish with coconut-mmmmm) following the same steps. It’s easy and delicious, so today, take the time to spoil yourself or someone you love! Happy Cooking!
