Ingredients:

French Toast

  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 3 medium sized bananas
  • 4 pinches ground nutmeg 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 4 Mexican bolillo rolls 
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese 
  • 6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar 
  • 1 lemon, zested 
  • 6 eggs 
  • 3/4 cup milk 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 teaspoons butter, or as needed 
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil, or as needed 

Whipped Cream

  • 1 pint whipped cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar-(to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract -(to taste)
  • Chilled mixing bowl

Directions:

Whipped Cream Directions

Pour whipped cream into chilled bowl, whip with beaters on med/high speed, gently mix in powdered sugar and vanilla and whip until soft peaks form, keep chilled until ready to use. 

French Toast Directions

Slice strawberries and bananas and set aside. Next slice off and discard the ends of the bolillo rolls. Slice the rolls into 1 1/4-inch-thick slices. Lay each slice of bread on a board, and with a sharp knife held parallel to the board, cut a pocket into each slice, leaving three sides intact. Set aside.

Stir together the mascarpone, confectioners' sugar, and lemon zest until smooth. Scoop this mixture into a small plastic bag. Cut off one corner of the bag, and pipe as much filling into the pocket in each slice of bread as will fit without overflowing. Whisk together eggs, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla in a shallow bowl. Melt butter with oil over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet. Dip each stuffed piece of bread into the batter, add to the skillet, and cook until browned on both sides. 

Plate and cover with sliced strawberries and bananas then sprinkle with powdered sugar.  For a little extra flavor, gently drizzle french toast with warmed maple syrup and top with whipped cream, I'm just sayin...
