Berry Good French Toast

Makes 2 Servings

Strawberry Topping
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/4 cup of water
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Pinch of salt

For the topping, place the strawberries, water, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan.
Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and continue to cook at a low boil, stirring every few minutes, until the berries break down and the mixture is nice and syrupy, 15 to 20 minutes. To speed things up a bit, use the back of a spoon to smoosh the berries against the side of the saucepan as you stir.

French Toast
2 large eggs
1/4 cup 1% lowfat milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 slices 100% whole wheat bread
1 teaspoon canola oil
Powdered sugar

Whisk together the eggs, milk, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Dip the bread in the egg mixture, one slice at a time, and coat evenly. Place the bread in the skillet and cook until the bottoms turn golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
Sprinkle the bread with powdered sugar and to
Top with the strawberry topping. A fun twist to syrup on French toast
