Patriotic French Toasts

Not exactly coming from France, French Toast have made their way to the U.S. to stay. Enjoy these while celebrating your 4th of July breakfast!

Patriotic French Toasts with Orange Cream

6 slices sandwich bread
2 cups milk
3 whole eggs
1 tbs agave syrup (or sugar)
1/8 tsp Madagascar Vanilla extract
½ stick butter
1 basket fresh strawberries, sliced
1 container blueberries

Orange Sauce

1 pint heavy cream (or 1 container sugar free whipped cream)
1 tsp orange extract (or orange juice to taste)
1 tbs agave syrup

Mix milk, eggs, agave, and vanilla. Cover it and leave it refrigerated overnight.

Leave bread slices drying overnight. This will allow them to absorb more of the liquid the next morning.

Heat a large skillet at medium temperature.

Put two bread slices on the egg mixture and let them soak for about 30 seconds in each side.

Smear butter in the hot pan and cook the toasts until both sides are golden brown.

Mix all of the ingredients in the orange sauce, pour over the French Toasts and garnish with the berries.
