Strawberry French Toast

Hello Friends! Today is the official start of Spring vacation week here and as a treat, I wanted to kick it off with this fun breakfast!  I got this idea from one of my new favorite blogs - Meal Makeover Moms.  They are changing the way I cook for my family.  Liz and Janice (who also do a weekly podcast by the way) take your families favorite meals and treats and transform them into the healthy (or healthier) version you always wanted.  I'm feeling less guilty everyday thanks to these ladies!

My household loves strawberries and french toast, so this recipe was right up our alley.  Do your kids drown their french toast in syrup? Well, not anymore.  Take a look at this gem....

1 cup frozen strawberries (unsweetened)
1/2 cup water
2 tbs sugar
pinch of salt

Place the strawberries, water, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan.  Place over high heat and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and continue to cook at a low boil, stirring every few minutes for about 15-20 minutes.  The mixture will become thick and syrupy. 

Serve over french toast.  Easy Peasy!

Top with whip cream or a sprinkle of powdered sugar if you desire....I did! : )

We love this french toast.  The best part is kids are getting a serving of fruit and you don't need to add any sugary syrup.  The strawberry topping is enough! It's so good!

Store any extra sauce in a sealed container in the fridge.  And just so you know - it's pretty awesome over ice cream too!
