1 pint strawberries
2 tablespoons plus additional sugar
4 slices cinnamon swirl bread
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 slices Canadian bacon
2 slices baby Swiss cheese
Slice strawberries and add just enough sugar to create a natural strawberry syrup from the juices. Let stand. Mix eggs with milk, cinnamon and sugar in shallow bowl. Dip each slice of bread in egg mixture, fully coating both sides. Fry in skillet lightly coated with cooking spray until lightly browned. Add Canadian bacon to skillet and cook until warmed through. Immediately layer two slices bacon and slice of cheese between warm French toast. Put on plate and top with strawberries and enough syrup to drip over sides. Dust with powdered sugar.

Cook’s Tip: Prepared frozen strawberries can be substituted when fresh are not available. After thawing, the strawberries have a great natural syrup.
