French Toast Hearts with Nutella, Strawberries, and Raspberries

Darling... I am retired now. Let me fix you breakfast in bed. "I love you..."
(Don't get too used to it!)

So... for this decadent breakfast, you will need:

SOURDOUGH BREAD, two slices for each heart (serve one or two hearts per person depending on size)
NUTELLA (this is a spread made with chocolate and hazelnuts)
2 large EGGS
1/2 c. MILK
2 Tbsp. BUTTER

Fresh MINT for garnish

Make a heart template out of cardboard. Place the template on each slice of bread and cut out with a sharp knife.
Spread a heart with nutella (be generous) and top with another heart to make a sandwich.

Whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla together in a bowl.
Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture, allowing it to soak into the bread.

Melt butter in a non-stick pan and sauté each heart until browned on each side and place on individual serving plates.

Top with thawed strawberries and some of their juice. (If you wish, you may warm them slightly before using).
Place fresh raspberries on top.

Sprinkle with some confectioner's sugar, if desired, garnish with mint and serve.
