Thank you for this recipe!

We have been looking for this recipe for years! My son fell in love with stuffed French toast on a trip to Ensenada when he was little and after trying many versions we nearly gave up on making this at home. But your recipe tasted just like the one he remembers from the resort - THANK YOU! We loved it!
