Reviews for French Toast Fingers
"Can this recipe be cooked and then frozen"
"I add a teaspoon of vanilla to enrich the flavor. For Jeanelle just eat 2 not 3 sticks. That is equivalent to 1 and 1/3 slices of bread."
"Very good recipe."
"Made these for camping. Followed directions, but added cream cheese and apricot jam. Froze on baking sheet,then bagged and labeled.At camp, I got my electric skillet outside, browned some sausage links --- while fingers thawed some. Then I slid the sausages to the outer edges of skillet and browned the french toast fingers. Enjoyed by young and old alike. Thanks for the idea."
"I am not sure how this can be catagorized as a diabetic recipe with 42 carbs per serving? I can only have 30 carbs per meal so this will not work for me"
"I used whole grain bread and added some cream cheese to the filling."
"Great hit with the kids! Super easy to make, and tasted great! The only change I made, was I added vanilla flavored soy milk instead of regular milk to the mix ... only because my son can't digest dairy. But they turned out great nonetheless. Great with sugar on top!"
