Description: A tasty treat with fresh hamburger buns and strawberries... fresh strawberries are always a wonderful choice for dessert and the honey drizzle, melted / softened butter are a real treat !

12  12 Hawaiian Hot Dog or Hamburger Buns, opened
1/4 stick  Softened butter, for spreading
as wanted  Honey, for drizzling
1 lb  1 lb. strawberries, hulled and sliced or quartered
as wanted  Sugar, for sprinkling, to taste, and some for the whipped cream
1 cup  Heavy cream
8-10  Basil leaves, stacked, rolled, and very thinly sliced; some reserved for garnish

Instructions: Place the buns in a toaster or oven and cook until golden brown and lightly toasted. When done, remove and slather a light coating of butter on all halves. Drizzle with honey. Cut or tear into 1" chunks and divide between 4 small plates or bowls.

Place the sliced or quartered strawberries in a mixing bowl and sprinkle with sugar to your desired sweetness. Let sit for about 5 minutes, or up to an hour.

While the strawberries are macerating, place cream in a stand mixer and whip on high speed. Add a few pinches of sugar, until soft peaks form. If you do not have a stand mixer, you may use a handheld mixer - or if using a whisk, beat by hand. When you have reached soft peaks, gently fold in the sliced basil.

Evenly distribute the strawberries over the four dishes of toasted bread and place a nice dollop of basil whipped cream on top. Using the reserved basil, garnish the top.
