Ahoy Fellow Fathomers and welcome to The Locker for a tasty dessert treat. Please also visit my fellow SCP authors for your chance to win several prizes and find some decadent recipes. My recipe today is a tried and true breakfast favorite I've shared many times with my loved ones. I ate this delicious variation at a restaurant in Denver, CO and decided to make my own recipe to serve from my kitchen.  I even won a cooking contest and my recipe was featured in our electric co-op magazine publication. You can win something TOO-- Comment below for your entry for a $10 SCP gift certificate!  Enjoy!

Frisky French Toast

1 pint strawberries*
2 tablespoons plus additional sugar

4 slices cinnamon swirl bread

4 eggs

1/4 cup milk

2 teaspoons cinnamon

4 slices Canadian bacon

2 slices baby Swiss cheese

Powdered sugar
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.
*Prepared frozen strawberries can be substituted when fresh are not available. After thawing, the strawberries have a great natural syrup.
