Since this holiday season tends to be a little overloaded with heavier, longer, and more complicated recipes, I thought we might take a quick break. Introducing one of my all time favorite breakfast toasts to date, the strawberry mascarpone cinnamon raisin breakfast toast!
And in case you were wondering, yes I still have a cold. It will NOT go away. It just keeps lingering and I'm at a complete loss. I feel much more normal now but my nose is justthe worst and my voice sounds like a frog. Still, it's a little bit better every day, just taking foreverrrr.
The reason I bring this up is because having a cold constantly does take its toll. This time of year is an important time for this blog and I have been slacking, trying to rest and heal and all that. But now that I seem to be on the mend I promise I'll get back all of your comments and e-mails pronto 👍🏻.
Now, onward to strawberry mascarpone cinnamon raisin breakfast toast! I made this recipe with Christmas in mind; red, green and a little on the sweeter side 😊.
It's light, refreshing, easy and only takes 10 minutes to make!
If you're thinking this recipe is strongly reminiscent of my cherry mascarpone breakfast toast, you would be correct. While adding a few more winter friendly ingredients, I used the same base recipe. Also, because it's Christmastime, I switched out the pugliese bread for an artisan cinnamon raisin loaf and sprinkled everything with a little bit of cinnamon sugar (It's treat yo self season!!! High five to all the Parks and Rec lovers out there).
