1 large sprig fresh basil
6 cups strawberries, quartered if large
1/4 cup honey
juice of ½ a Cara Cara or Naval orange, approximately ⅓ cup, zest reserved

3/4 cup milk
reserved zest of 1 orange
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

In a large bowl, mix the strawberries, honey, and orange juice together. Spread the strawberries evenly onto a large baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Separate the roasted berries from the roasted syrup in the pan, set both aside for serving.
Stack a few slices of prepared French toast onto a plate, pile it with roasted strawberries, drizzle with Roasted Strawberry Syrup, Basil-infused honey if using, and garnish with toasted nuts and fresh basil. Serve immediately.
