My first attempt was not successful. However, I will definitely make this again.
This is a quick-and-simple dish to prepare. I think this French toast custard could be improved with the addition of some fresh fruit.

For the past 5 years, I have made this recipe as a pre-Christmas brunch for friends and neighbors. Everyone loves it! I serve it with a big ham steak and/or sausage.
