Ingredients
  • 4-5 slices stale bread (I used sourdough)
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 3/4 teaspoon good quality vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 3 Tablespoon Turbinado Sugar (raw sugar)
  • Strawberry syrup for serving
Instructions
  1. Start by tearing the bread into bite sized pieces.

  2. Slice the strawberries into thirds or simply some big slices. The bigger the berry, the more the slices. Small ones just need to be cut in half (saving a few for garnish).

  3. Whisk the eggs, vanilla, half and half and granulated sugar together.

  4. Lay half the bread in the bottom of a lightly buttered casserole dish. Top with 1/2 the berries.

  5. Do a second layer of the two on top of the first.

  6. Pour the milk and egg mixture over the top and sprinkle with about 1 Tablespoon of the turbinado sugar.

  7. Push the bread down in the liquid, then cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight. Remove from the refrigerator and let set for about 30 minutes.

  8. Preheat the oven to 350°. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the top is golden.

  9. Top with the remaining turbinado sugar and melt it with a brûlée torch. You can use the broiler if you don't have a torch, but I highly recommend a torch. They are inexpensive and easy to use!

  10. Serve hot with some warm strawberry syrup. So good!!
