Ingredients

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

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Half & Half

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs slightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

 

Powdered sugar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    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.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

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

  5. STEP 5

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

Tip #1

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

Tip #2

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