If you are after a really sumptuous breakfast or brunch treat, then look no further. The rich buttery flavour of brioche is used to sandwich ripe strawberries and vanilla infused sugar. The perfect summer morning sandwich and so much prettier than bacon and eggs!
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Toasting time: 6 minutes
8 slices of brioche bread
400g ripe Sweet Eve strawberries
Unsalted butter for spreading
100g soft brown cane sugar
1 heaped tsp of vanilla bean paste
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Cover a roasting tray with aluminium foil, and place the eight slices of toast on the tray. Toast till golden brown, roughly 3 minutes each side. The brioche bread will go quite crispy. Set aside for a few minutes to cool down slightly.
2. Hull the strawberries with a teaspoon, and then slice them in quarters. Place in a bowl, add the vanilla bean paste and the sugar, and then mix well.
3. Take four slices of toasted brioche, spread each thinly with butter, then spoon some of the strawberry mixture on top of each. Top each with another slice of toasted brioche, to form a sandwich.
4. Serve each toasted brioche sandwich on individual serving plates, with a spoonful or two of extra strawberries on the side.
