Ingredients

  • Oatmeal bread
  • Egg
  • Skim milk
  • Maple syrup
  • Strawberries

Beat an egg, using a fork, in a medium, low bowl.  Add about ¾ cup milk per each egg used.  Add a teaspoon of maple syrup and stir well.

Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out heart shapes from the center of bread slices.  Dip all bread pieces into egg mixture and set onto  pancake griddle or large skillet set on medium heat.  Brown lightly on both sides.

Garnish with cut strawberries and maple syrup.
