French Toast with Blueberry Sauce

Blueberry Sauce

  • 16 oz fresh blueberries
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract

French Toast

  • 8 slices Texas Toast
  • 6 eggs
  • King rice bran oil
  • 2  bananas, sliced
  • 4 whole strawberries, sliced and fanned out, for garnish
  • Powdered sugar, for garnish

Directions

Put blueberries, lemon juice, and sugar in a small saucepan at medium heat and bring to boil.  Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes until syrupy.  Turn off heat, add vanilla extract, and set aside.

Heat a non-stick frying pan at medium heat, and grease frying pan with rice bran oil.  In the mean time, beat eggs in a large, shallow bowl.  Dip each slice of white bread in the egg batter to coat both sides.  Cook each slice of bread to golden brown on each side.

To finish, place two slices of toast overlapping on a plate, pour a quarter of the blueberry sauce over French toast. Arrange banana slices and strawberries on top, and dust with powder sugar to taste.  Serves 4.
