This was colorful and very tasty. I always prepare French Toast with thick slices of bread which I've placed on the bread board to "dry" for at least 8 hours. I learned this technique from Alton Brown, and it really does make a huge difference. He also suggests making the egg batter in advance and refrigerating it overnight, but I haven't found that step improves the toast.

I made this for my girlfriend and she loved it! I'm kind of new at the whole cooking thing and it was nice to find something tasty and nourishing that can be thrown together in a few minutes. Due to my skill I think it could have been a little bit better but I wouldn't fault the recipe for that. Thanks for posting; I can't wait to try this one again!

YummY! I used raisin bread and omitted the strawberries (none on hand) and served this with Brown Sugar Syrup (Glaze). This was a wonderful combination and made a delightful weekend breakfast. This is so quick to come together, I could see making this during the week as well. Maybe even dinner too!

This was sooo good! I couldn't get any nice looking berries...but that didn't matter. It was scrumptious with just bananas and nuts on top. Definitely have to make this again!!! Thanks Homegirl!

I loved this easy and delicious recipe, I had never added my sugar in the egg mixture and it seemed to give the edges a little crunch which I loved. My husband really felt special this morning with this for breakfast. Thanks for a great recipe, this is now my new way of making french toast.

I made this for breakfast this morning. I only ate a bite as I wasn't hungry, but I loved it. My two-year old loved it, too - at least the toast part! My husband needed some time to adjust - he's a traditionalist when it comes to French Toast. After some time, though, he decided he liked it and rated it 4 stars (I gave it 5 since my son and I both loved it). What I did differently: I used day-old French bread sliced about 1/2" thick, used more eggs, skipped the sugar in the egg mixture and replaced the cinnamon with Ceylon cinnamon (unrelated to regular cinnamon - slightly sweet, somewhat citrusy flavor), and skipped the nuts and the butter (the butter on the griddle was plenty). It was really yummy, and I'll look forward to making it again.
