My Sunday morning went a little like this:
Mimi (aka grandma): Sophia, give me a morning kiss.
Sophia: No Mimi, I have no energy for kisses.
Big words coming from a 3 year old right?
So I made a little something, off of my Pinterest board "Breakfast". It came out absolutely delicious! The strawberry weren't mooshy and it wasn't too sweet. Just perfect!
I started with my syrup.
You're supposed to use a quart of strawberries, but I used a pound, cut in fourths.
1/2 Cp Sugar
1/4 Orange juice or orange liqueur (I used orange + pineapple juice).
1 ts Grated orange rind (I used 1 whole orange for this since I love zest).
You throw it all into a pot, let it sit for 30 minutes. And then simmer for 5 minutes. The strawberries will still be firm and the sugar would have melted. If you want soft strawberries, you can always simmer longer.
|All my ingredients in the pot. Look at that beautiful zest!|
Slice 4 croissants in half, lengthwise. (Or 8 slices of bread).
Add a tablespoon of butter to a large frying pan. Dip your croissant halves into the egg mixture and coat well. Fry in your pan!
|Lovely assistant right there! Nice big hands right?|
|They should look a little like this after frying them for about 2 minutes on each side, with your stove on medium heat.|
