2 cups fresh strawberries, diced
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
10-12 slices french bread, about 3/4 inch thick
1 cup vanilla flavored coffee creamer
2 eggs

To prepare syrup, place diced strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a medium sauce pan. Heat over medium heat, stirring, until a juice forms and sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occassionally.

While syrup is simmering, prepare the french toast. Whisk together coffee creamer and eggs in a medium bowl. Dip each slice of bread in egg mixture coating both sides of bread. Place egg coated bread on a preheated skillet or griddle heated to 300 degrees (medium heat) coated with butter. Let slices cook for 60-90 seconds each side, until egg is cooked and golden brown. Remove from skillet and place on serving plate. Top with fresh strawberry syrup.
