French Toast with Peaches and Raspberries

Posted online

Peaches and raspberries are the perfect addition of light sweetness to buttery French toast that’s great with a side of crispy bacon or sizzling sausage.

Why try? Who needs syrup when you can top your French toast with fresh fruit glazed in raspberry?

Foodie Byte: Instead of the typical milk and eggs mixture to coat your French toast, why not try a richer, more flavorful combination of vanilla-scented cream and eggs? It will not only improve the flavor, but your French toast will be lighter in texture and have a crunchy amber crust.
