{Brunch Starter} French Toast Bites with Warm, Fresh Strawberry Compote

With brunch being a popular meal for events lately, I love experimenting with different tasty brunch recipes. Whether you’re hosting a brunch shower, bridesmaid brunch or a variety of other mid-morning events, it’s always a good idea to have some easy-to-eat brunch recipes in mind — like these delicious French toast bites with warm, fresh strawberry compote!

This fresh favorite is easy to make and ultra-delicious! Even if you’re not hosting a brunch party, it’s perfect for a laid-back weekend breakfast; plus, fresh strawberry compote is a great alternative to fattening, sugary syrup! Head over to my Foodie page to see the recipe.
