I've been seeing strawberries on sale a lot recently at the grocery store. My family never tires of eating them fresh out of the container, but I'm always on the lookout for other ways to use them. I thought this recipe was interesting since I had never seen or thought of using strawberries in a bread. This was really easy to make and was really tasty. The original recipe at One Perfect Bite also includes a recipe for a Strawberry Cream Cheese Spread. However, we already had an open strawberry cream cheese that I wanted to use up. The cream cheese on the bread was an awesome idea! This was a great breakfast for the kids served with some yogurt and fruit.
