    A wonderful enhancement to French Toast. Hubby asked for seconds. I will be making this often.

    So good! My kitchen literally smelled like a diner after making these. Love the vanilla. I used a day-old Italian country loaf of bread. The honey butter was really good, but I just can't give up my maple syrup.

    Oh yum, this was delicious! The buttery honey syrup with chopped nuts was so delicious hat I might use it for all my pancake, waffles and French toast recipes. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Bayhill. Made for your Week 7 win in the Football pool.

    While this french toast was good, there wasn't a big difference in flavor from traditional french toast. Yet it has a lot more calories. DH was the only one who used the honey pecan topping. I tried this with an apple cinnamon pancake mix once as well.
