I don’t know about you…but over at the Shull house, we’re gearing up for Memorial Day. For me, Memorial Day is the beginning of summer. This year, I thought I would make a festive breakfast to serve my family on Memorial Day (or July 4th too!). It’s a blueberry bagel French Toast with fresh strawberry sauce down over the top. Delish!
This recipe serves four.
about 4 cups chopped strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon
4 Blueberry Bagels, split in half
I would begin by making the strawberry sauce first and then the French toast. Go ahead and preheat your griddle or large skillet to medium-high and lightly spray with Pam while you’re making your sauce (so it’s ready and waiting for your French Toast).
To make the sauce, in a small saucepan, combine your chopped strawberries and sugar over medium-high heat. Stir them around occasionally and they’ll start to melt together. I used a wooden spoon and mashed the strawberries as they cooked. Once they become jam-like (it took about 8 minutes), remove from heat and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Dip each half of a bagel into your egg mixture and place on your hot griddle or skillet. Cook up each side of the bagel about 2 or 3 minutes.
Remove from griddle and serve with strawberry sauce down on top.
Red, White and Blueberry…perfect for your patriotic holiday mornings!
