    My husband, who has very little cooking experience, wanted to make french toast for us and so I looked up this recipe for him. This turned out so well that it is now our very favorite recipe for french toast...and I have tried dozens of different recipes for french toast.  -  08 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a good recipe. I used Texas toast instead also I cut out the nutmeg plus used some vanilla. We enjoyed it  -  11 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I loved this recipe. I did modify it instead of milk I used heavy cream, and for the bread I used Pepperidge farms french vanilla bread! Yummy! Be sure not to let your bread too long, I usually just coat one side, then the other and onto the hot skillet! Yummy  -  08 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
