Strawberries & Cream Stuffed French Toast (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

I love French Toast but it seems like I don’t make it enough! This week I had french toast on the brain all week, so I knew that I would end up making it for breakfast or brunch on Saturday.

My husband loves it when I make a nice Saturday morning breakfast. When I told him about what I was planning on making for today, he asked me what we were planning on having on the side and I didn’t really have any ideas. But he suggested TURKEY BACON! We don’t eat bacon at our house usually because it’s just too greasy for my digestive system. But I vaguely remember my dad eating turkey bacon when I was a kid and it wasn’t too greasy. I kind of forgot that turkey bacon even existed, but now that we have rediscovered it and my digestive system is okay with it, I think it will be a regular staple at our house!

Now on to my recipe for Strawberries & Cream Stuffed French Toast!

For the strawberry syrup, combine the strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and cook until the strawberries are soft and is a syrup consistency.

Serve the strawberry syrup over the stuffed french toast. If you have any leftover Strawberries & Cream Filling, you can also serve extra on top of the french toast.
