Strawberry Butter

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon strawberry preserves

French Toast

8 (3/4-inch) slices Italian bread
2 Land O Lakes® Eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar


Combine 1/2 cup butter, 1/3 cup powdered sugar and preserves in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.

Cut bread slices with a 2 1/2- to 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Combine half & half, eggs and vanilla in 9-inch pie plate; mix well. Dip 4 bread shapes into half & half mixture, turning to coat both sides; let stand 1-2 minutes.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch nonstick skillet or griddle until sizzling; add coated bread. Cook over medium heat, turning once, 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from skillet; keep warm. Carefully clean skillet with paper towel, if necessary.

Repeat dipping remaining bread shapes into egg mixture. Melt remaining butter in skillet and cook bread as directed.

Sprinkle hot French toast with powdered sugar; serve with Strawberry Butter.

Recipe Tip

- Spread any remaining Strawberry Butter on bagels or English muffins.

- If you do not have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, use a heart-shaped template and sharp knife to cut heart shapes.

Five star recipe, Good
Easy and very yummy. They turn out looking just as good as in the picture... so fun!!
Substitute any flavor of preserves.
Substitute any flavor of extract, i.e., butternut, almond, etc.
Can be made ahead of time & frozen.
Can use most types of bread.
Also, don't waste the remaining bread scraps. Make french toast mini strips out of them and freeze for a later treat.
