Grilled Grilled French Toast with Strawberries and Rosemary



Here is a great recipe that I found online that would be really good for brunch or possibly even for a dessert to finish out a meal on the grill.

  • Vegetable oil, for brushing the grill
  • 1 quart strawberries, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar
  • Juice of 1 orange, plus 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Kosher salt
  • Six 1-inch slices challah bread
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting, optional

Preheat a cast-iron grill pan to medium and brush with oil.
Place the strawberries on a large piece of foil. Top with the balsamic, orange juice, zest and rosemary. Fold up the edges of the foil to form a sealed packet and place on one corner of the grill. Cook until the strawberries are warmed through and softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
In a shallow baking dish, combine the eggs, cream, honey, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Whisk until uniformly combined. Dip both sides of the bread slices in the custard mixture, and then transfer to the grill.
Cook until the first side of the French toast is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Gently flip and cook the other side, another minute or two.
Remove from the grill and transfer to a platter. Spoon the strawberries on top and dust with powdered sugar if desired.


This recipe sounds great! I have tried strawberries and whipped cream with French toast before but never grilled. I normally fry it in butter. I should try the grilling option though.
