"We enjoyed this sweet french toast with bacon, and it was a perfect sweet and salty combination. I only got 12 slices in the pan before I ran out of the egg mixture, maybe because I used whole wheat french bread. We didn't bother with syrup since it was already sweet."

"This was an excellent recipe and absolutely delicious. You do not need to add anything to it, just eat as is...this recipe is that tasty. Fresh fruit compliments the french toast nicely as well. I would make this again and have been sharing the recipe with everybody."
