  1. This recipe is so delicious! I love amaretto, so this recipe was really a treat. I used cinnamon swirl bread. I didn't use the amaretto syrup on mine but the rest of the family did and they gave it 5 Stars! Made for Veg 'n Swap tag.
  2. Yummy! This was really simple and so good. I halved the recipe for my grandson and myself. Made as directed for one serving, then used Frangelico for the other serving. Both of us enjoyed this both ways a lot. Thanks Mikekey for sharing this winning recipe. Congrats on your win in the Football Pool.
  3. What a wonderful way to make yourself feel special! The Amaretto is amazing in this and adds such flavor. I can't wait to make this again!
  4. I took the chef's suggestion and used Bailey's Irish Cream for the French toast portion and skipped the milk altogether (we like eggy French toast). I used Amaretto for the syrup, and left the butter plain. Worked wonderful, so delicious! Thanks for a keeper recipe. Update: Made again this morning, omitting the syrup, and adding the Amaretto to melted butter for the condiment along with powdered sugar atop. Loved it (again). :)
  5. I said a couple of Hail Marys so as not to feel so guilty for eating something so decadent. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
