This recipe was okay. Wouldn't make it again, but overall, it was easy to make.

Fantastic. Make twice as much apple topping, it is delicious and will go quickly. This apple topping could be used on a dessert as well. Yummy, it'll be hard to eat french toast any other way!

This is one of my weekly breakfast recipes that the whole family enjoys. I actually substitute the brown sugar and use Splenda brown sugar so that it has even less sugar content and use Skim milk instead of 2%. It is so delicious!!
