Top Review by Sydney Mike

Because I was serving this up with another dish for breakfast, I did cut the recipe in half, & used some whole grain bread that we like ~ Otherwise the recipe was followed, & we totally loved the flavor of this French Toast, especially with the syrup given in the recipe! Very, very satisfying! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
