I like to surprise my family at breakfast by having heart-shaped French toast on the table. Confectioners' sugar, strawberries and almond butter tastefully top off each bite. —Donna Cline, Pensacola, Florida

"The almond butter was a great addition to the french toast. I added a few toasted slivered almonds to the top for an extra crunch!"

"I made these for Valentine's Day lunch & took them in to my husband at work, everyone else was jealous! He can't have almonds, so I just used regular milk, but the heart shape idea was great! I made all the extra crusts & pieces into bread crumbs for use in later recipes."

"This recipe is so tasty and so easy! We make this recipe often, and served Almond French Toast (without cutting it into heart shapes) for a big Easter brunch. It was a hit! Everyone asked for the recipe."
