Strawberry and Mascarpone Stuffed French Toast

Strawberry and Mascarpone Stuffed French Toast

I had some mascarpone left over that I wanted to finish and with french toast fresh on my mind I knew of a perfect way to enjoy it, in the form of strawberry and mascarpone stuffed french toast! I kept the recipe pretty simple using the strawberry and mascarpone filling from the strawberry and mascarpone crepes and I stuffed it into a french toast sandwich and grilled it up. I then simmered some more strawberries along with some sugar to make a thick strawberry syrup which I used to smother the french toast with, covering it with even more strawberry goodness. This strawberry and mascarpone stuffed french toast made for a really nice lazy Sunday morning breakfast! What a great way to enjoy some perfectly ripe in season strawberries!
