If you have ever visited New Orleans and been served french toast.. this is it..They are sinfully good.. For those who chose the non bourbon recipe you can use rum extract in water for the bourbon.. Honestly try it with it first.. I have made this with Windsor, Jameson and Jim Beam. I prefer the Windsor version better as it is sweeter then the others and doesn't have a big bite to it. Even though it is a Canadian whiskey instead of a good rye. That is my preference though.
