Ice Cream on French Toast

I posted this back on Instagram back in 2018, and until now, I am still wondering if this is appropriate. This happens when I want desserts for brunch. You should see the looks on my daughters' faces when I served these up for their brunch. They said, "we should have this for brunch everyday!" I just shocked my head in disagreement, "not unless you are willing to work out after." I was thinking to myself, maybe it is a good idea to serve desserts for brunch. You seriously don't want to serve desserts to your kids right after dinner; it will keep them hyper active at night! Lol!

Anyway, you can use any combination of fruits as desired. I do find that the combination of strawberries and kiwi looks more Insta-worthy. Don't you agree? I would recommend a good quality coned ice cream as it is the start of the show. I was using Wall's Cornetto. In closing, I really hope you will give this recipe a try and impress your kids.
