french toast
12 slices of whole grain bread

1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 C  brown sugar or sugar of your choice
3 T ground pecans 
3 T butter

2 1/2 C strawberries (frozen thawed)

1. Grease 9 X 13 pan.  
2. Place bread slices in pan overlapping them.
3. Beat or blend in blender eggs, milk, vanilla, and,  spices.  
4. Pour over the bread. You can cover and put in fridge over night or just continue to prepare.
5. In a small bowl mix the sugar, nuts and butter. Sprinkle over the bread.
6. Bake in hot oven for about 40 min or until knife comes out clean.
7. For syrup place the strawberries, juice and honey into blender and blend until smooth.
