    This is a awesome french toast recipe. My kids request if frequently! I use a loaf of french bread and cut the slices thick. I also found that I use more bread crumbs then the recipe calls for and add a little cinnamon. I double the recipe when I make this because the left overs freeze well. I pop them in the microwave on those busy mornings! They are way better then the "frozen french toast" you buy in the grocery store!

    This was just awesome. I loved the breadcrumb topping. Made a really nice crisp coating. I used Texas Toast and my waffle iron to make this and didn't change a thing. It's quick and easy to make, however, I could only make three pieces with the batter. Thanks

    This has become my family's favorite breakfast! The first morning I made it, I went to Great Harvest Bread Company to buy french toast bread (basically a cinnamon roll bread). I now use my favorite cinnamon roll recipe (Clone of a Cinnabon). I roll the dough tightly, stick a few wooden skewers vertically to decrease the separation between layers, and cut the roll to fit 2 loaf pans. Bake the roll, loaves. Cut into 3/4 to 1" slices and proceed. This would be good with any thickly slicked bread, but the cinnamon roll bread is a nice twist!
