For this special day, we’re serving up a romantic brunch with a French toast recipe that you’ll fall in love with.

Valentine’s Brunch French Toast:

Ingredients

  • 1 carton strawberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 slices of Klosterman White Bread
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • Confectioner’s sugar

In a saucepan, add chopped strawberries, sugar, lemon and cornstarch. Cook over medium heat for 15 minutes or until the strawberries are cooked and soft. Let this mixture cool before blitzing with a hand blender.

For the French toast, whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla in a large bowl. Transfer 1/3 of the mixture into another bowl and add a drop of red food coloring, if you’d like. With a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut shapes out of your bread slices. Dunk your bread slices into the egg mixture and the heart cut outs in the pink egg mixture. Cook the bread in a frying pan over medium heat until both sides are golden brown. Before serving your French toast, drizzle the strawberry puree on top and dust with sugar.

Kick Start a Healthier Year with These Pantry Packing Hacks

January 4th, 2017

We all kick off the new year with fresh resolutions. One of the most common? To get a little healthier. This year, we want you to start your year off on a healthier foot!

Tweet: Start your year on the right foot with these healthy pantry packing tips via @klostermanbread http://bit.ly/2ghlNTeStart your year on the right foot with these healthy pantry packing tips via @klostermanbread http://bit.ly/2ghlNTe http://ctt.ec/5nye7

For us, trying to become healthier starts with what you eat. So grab your grocery list as we get ready to help you pack your pantry with healthy ingredients for delicious meals.

  • Canned and dried beans: beans are lean, full of fiber and inexpensive. Add herbs and oil to this versatile ingredient and you will have a delicious side. Or create a hearty vegetarian soup, stew or pasta by adding in this nutrient-rich ingredient.
  • Pantry stored produce: onions, garlic and shallots are a key to developing succulent flavors in your dishes. These produce items are best stored in a pantry, so go ahead and stock up on your next grocery trip!
  • Spices and dried herbs: using spices and dried herbs is a great way to add flavor to your recipes, without relying on fats or salt, and can give you an antioxidant boost!
  • Whole grains: we’ve heard it for years that whole grains are great for the body. By choosing hearty whole grains like quinoa, you can lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Our final pantry packing tip? Be sure to have a loaf of whole grain bread on hand. Here at Klosterman Bread, we have a selection of natural, whole wheat bakery products to choose from. From signature breads, buns and hoagies we have whole grain rich products that will keep you on track this year. Learn more about which bread you should reach for right over here.
