Looking for the perfect breakfast to make for your guy or gal? You’re both going to love this Strawberries and Cream Sourdough French Toast for two!
Holy shit was my first reaction, too.
These have to be some of the most beautiful french toasties we’ve ever made here at Fit Foodie HQ. I wanted to make an epic Valentine’s Day breakfast (dedicated to Man Candy, of course), so I thought I would make his most requested breakfast that I make for us when we are together – sourdough french toast. We’ve been on a huge sourdough kick lately because we love the chewiness and flavor of it. So so sooooo yummy.
Look, we even made a video for you. Easy, right?
I grew up eating some of the best French toast on this planet. My mom was a huge fan and she’s the one who introduced me to my main lady, Aunt Jemima. Nothing like some good ol’ AJ on top of French toast made from Wonder Bread. Thankfully I’ve upgraded since the 90’s to real maple syrup because it doesn’t get much better than that. I feel like we go through way too much maple in this house, but not only is this natural source of sugar better for you, but I absolutely love the the flavor maple gives. I’ve also upgraded from white bread, too. While this is a store bought sourdough, I love going to a local bakery called Rustica for a fresh loaf here in Minneapolis. Back to the maple syrup, do you keep you syrup in the fridge or the cabinet? I feel like this is always a huge debate. I’m a fridge girl. What about you?
I thought I’d make this sourdough French toast extra special with some strawberries and cream, one of my favorite flavor combos. Plus, strawberries were on sale and you know I’m a sucker for a good sale. I’m sure you’re wondering how the cream is “healthy.” Well we tested a few different versions and came up with a lightened up one that’s perfectly sweet and a little bit tangy. It’s made with half heavy whipping cream and half non-fat Greek yogurt and is sweetened with honey.
^^ I promise you are going to love it and so is your bae.
