Did you know that strawberries are the only fruit with the seeds on the outside? The tiny little flecks covering the outside of those juicy strawberries are all you need to start your own garden because the average strawberry has at least 200 seeds! And since they’re the first fruit to ripen in spring, it’s no wonder the whole month of May is dedicated to enjoying the strawberry’s succulent flavor.

Whether you enjoy picking them fresh from the garden or farmers market and incorporating them into a delicious breakfast smoothie or enjoying as a cereal topping, add a little sweetness to your mornings this May in honor of National Strawberry Month. This delectable bed and breakfast recipe for Strawberry Croissant French Toast from the innkeepers at the Brewster House Bed & Breakfast located in Freeport, ME, is the perfect way to get started:

Slice croissants in half lengthwise. Whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into a shallow dish. Dip croissant halves into egg mixture, coating well.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet (or griddle) over medium heat. Add four croissant halves, and cook about 2 minutes on each side or until puffy and golden brown. Repeat procedure with remaining butter and croissant halves.

Serve the strawberry syrup over the french toast. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with whipped cream if desired.
