Ingredients

  • Strawberry Syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries, stems removed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Crunchy French Toast Sticks
  • 3 slices Texas Toast bread, cut into three strips each
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups crushed Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal
  • powdered sugar

Instructions

Strawberry Syrup

  1. In a medium saucepan on medium high heat, combine strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, and water. Cook until bubbly. Turn heat down to medium, and boil for 3-4 minutes, until the strawberries are soft. Use an immersion blender to puree the strawberries, and then add the cornstarch. Continue to boil for 6-8 more minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Cool slightly before serving, and keep leftovers refrigerated.
  2. Use leftovers for topping ice cream or yogurt, or for making strawberry milkshakes.

Crunchy French Toast Sticks

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla together.
  3. Place crushed cereal into another small bowl.
  4. Quickly dip the strips of bread into the egg mixture, and then into the crushed cereal, one by one. Press the cereal onto the bread to help it stick to all sides. Place the dipped bread onto a greased or Silpat lined baking sheet.
  5. Spray the top of each strip with cooking spray, or drizzle with a little melted butter if you prefer. This will help it get nice and crunchy!
  6. Bake for 12 minutes, and dust with powdered sugar. Serve with strawberry syrup or maple syrup.
