I'm very partial to recipes like these, whether jazzed up French toast or bread puddings that are a cut above the rest! This recipe is definitely that & not at all difficult to put together, either! A winning recipe that I'll be happy to make again, whether for company of just for ourselves! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
