    Yum, yum, yum!

    Adrienne Guarro from York, PA

    What a wonderful way to start a Saturday morning! This will disappear off of your family's plates! Add a side of protein, like sausage, bacon or eggs, to make this a balanced breakfast. Yummy!

    We Loved it!

    Rachel Oliver from MOULTON, AL

    My husband was home today and we had this with a late breakfast and he ate half of mine also! Then asked if I knew how to make that why haven't we had it before. He loved it and so did I.

    Lin from pittsburgh, PA

    I've been looking for a great french toast recipe...the kind that you get in a restaurant and have finally found it! I like a french toast that's not too eggy or overly sweet and this is perfect. My 5 yr old and 1year old devoured this one quickly.

    breakfast

    BEVEANNE WILLIAMS from ,

    we really liked this recipe although we had to substitute low carb and sugarfree ingredients in order to make it passable on our diet. this is an easy recipe that you can help your kids make without having to interfere, just supervise and they will be fine and it will taste great.

    Wow! This is super. We all love French Toast for breakfast but this is almost better than chocolate. I tried it with peaches and it's also very good.
