French Toast Easter Eggs Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here's a festive Easter treat and no-fuss brunch addition—all rolled into one! Like the CT home economists did, you can easily shape these eggs from bread with a cookie cutter, prepare them the same as traditional French toast and "paint" the pieces will jellies. Plus, youngsters, can decorate their own helpings with their name or designs.
