French Toast Napoleon with Strawberries

Batter Ingredients:

4                      Eggs

1 cup                Half and half (or milk)

1 Tbls.              Vanilla

2 Tbls.              Sugar

¾ tsp.               Cinnamon

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend for a few seconds or until smooth. 

 

Other Ingredients:

6 slices             Egg Bread or Challah Bread, 3/4" thick slices 

2 cups              French Toast Batter (recipe below)

1/4 cup             Butter, melted or Canola Oil      

3 cups              Sliced Strawberries, (room temperature) tossed with a little sugar

2 cups              Whipped Cream

1/2 cup             Glazed Pecans (Available at your favorite grocery store).

1 Tbls.              Powered Sugar

                        Maple Syrup, heated

 

Directions:

Dip the bread in batter. Gently squeeze the bread slices in several different spots (especially near the edge/crust) to help absorb the batter. Allow the batter to absorb into the bread while it rests for 10 minutes.

Drizzle melted margarine onto a grill or large sauté pan. Place the soaked bread onto the grill and cook until golden brown on both top and bottom (approx. 4 minutes per side).

Place a cooked slice on the plate, sprinkle sliced strawberries on top.  Place a second slice on top of first, add more sliced strawberries. Repeat. Garnish with whipped cream and glazed pecans, and then sprinkle powered sugar around the plate. Serve warm maple syrup on the side.
