Certainly a different way of making French toast, & a wonderfully satisfying way, at that! I cut the recipe in half & also used a strawberry yogurt! Appreciated that this toast was baked! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]

Just wonderful! This was very crispy and delicious. My family loved it. I used the cornflake crumbs that come already crushed in a box and they worked great.

This is a great recipe but make certain that your cornflake crumbs are *very* finely crushed for this recipe or they will not hold onto the bread, a problem I ran into while making this! I used 1/4 cup sugar for this in place of Splenda and all milk, thanks for sharing Marra!...Kitten:)
