Reviews for Family-Style French Toast
"French toast is my favorite brakfast , so when I found this I had to make it for company....delicious, easy, smells wonderful, I served it w/ fresh fruit salad and it was the perfect balance.My guests said it was very comforting! ( 7/12/13)"
"My kids loved this version of french toast, and they usually aren't big fans of french toast. They didn't even ask for syrup. I didn't soak the bread for as long, and it had a nice firm texture."
"This french toast was very good. No need for syrup. I may try soaking the bread a little less longer next time as well. However, we left it in the warmer drawer for seconds after church, and the additional time did help solidify the middle."
"This is a good recipe. Very easy. Just made for Sunday morning breakfast. Husband and boys, ages 5 and 3, all liked it."
"I probably wouldn't soak the bread for the full 5 min. next time. It soaked up to much and by the end I had no liquid left. Very goo tasting though."
