Large Brioche Toast with Roasted and Mashed Honey Sweetened Berries
- 4 (1-inch) thick slices brioche
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 2 pints mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon gray salt
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Heat a large grill pan and toast the brioche slices, turning once. Spread each toasted slice with butter and set aside.
Toss the berries in a bowl with the honey, lemon juice, and salt. Put them onto a sheet pan and roast for 5 minutes. Mash the cooked berries with a fork until spreading consistency. Spoon the warm berries over the brioche toast or let cool to room temperature. Berry mixture can be refrigerated for 1 week.
