Strawberry Stuffed French Toast

1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
4 Tbsp sugar
4 - 1" thick slices of French bread
1 cup low fat milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking powder
4 egg whites
2 eggs
3 tsp. butter
fresh strawberries
strawberry or maple syrup

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together the 1 cup of strawberries, the
lemon juice and zest and 2 Tbsp sugar. Set aside. Cut bread slices in
half and cut a slit in each slice to form a pocket. Stuff with
strawberries, secure with toothpicks. Place slices in a 13" X 9" greased
or buttered baking dish. In a saucepan, combine milk, sugar, vanilla,
baking powder and eggs. Mix well. Pour over stuffed bread, turning to
coat. Chill for 30-60 minutes, turning bread pieces occasionally. Grease
another 13" X 9" inch baking pan. Move bread pieces to this second pan
and bake for 3-6 minutes on each side. Serve warm with syrup and
additional strawberries.
