Still fresh or frozen, strawberries is one of my favorite fruits. Also, while I have an enormous chocolate fetish, strawberries keep me more healthier than choosing the chocolate while satisfying my sweet cravings. Maybe next time at the store, I’ll catch the fresh ones on a sale!
But, for a great dessert idea…I think a strawberry bread budding will do, a very simple recipe as well and definitely hits the spot tonite…

1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen strawberries, thawed
2 tbsp. cornstarch
2 1/2 c. milk
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 slices bread, cut in 1/2″ cubes (4 c.)
2 slightly beaten eggs
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
In small saucepan combine undrained strawberries and cornstarch. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture thickens and bubbles. Spread evenly over bottom of 10″x6″x2″ baking dish. In mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, butter, vanilla and salt. Add bread cubes to moisten. Carefully pour custard mixture over berries. Bake in 350 degree oven for 50 to 55 minutes. Serve warm with cream if desired.
