"So yummy!!!"

"I found this recipe but as I made it found I did not have half the ingredients. Substitutes 50/50 orange juice and tropical fruit juice for the 1 cup Orange juice, had no cream cheese and used sliced almonds instead of pecans - still tasted wonderful. I only made 7 slices as we only have 2 adults, a 2 year old and a 4 year old, next time I will only make 5 slices as the french toast was way too filling for us (even the adults) to eat it all."

"Ever since I came across this recipe, my family has loved me for finding it. This recipe is an official holiday/special occasion breakfast. I always have to make a double recipe because everybody wants seconds! (And there is only 5 people in my family...)"

"The cinnamon-sugar topping is heavenly! However, as much as I love cream cheese, I really think this recipe would be much better without it."
