I am not awarding stars because I may have done something wrong in the process of making the recipe. I expected the slices to puff in the oven turn golden and have a crisp coating. The crispness was there and that was very nice. My slices were apprx 1/2"thick- I recommend that they be at least 3/4".My oven was at 450F when I put in the tray and after 5 minutes they had not started to brown but I flipped them as the recipe said to do and baked a further 8 minutes - they were still not golden so I took out a fry pan , melted a tsp butter and finished them on top of the stove. They did not puff - I don't know why. I served them with Orange marmalade it went well with the toast. I am sorry that I can't be more helpful in explaining why this didn't work for me. I did cut the recipe back to 3 slices but there was lots of egg mixture in each slice.
