We discovered this recipe in Mexico. We couldn't figure out what made this French toast so delicious until we learned the secret was vanilla—one of Mexico's most popular flavorings. Since then, we've added a touch of vanilla to our waffle and pancake recipes. It makes them all very tasty. —Joe and Bobbi Schott, Castroville, Texas

"Very good simple recipe. I didn't add the sugar though since we use syrup on our french toast."

"Have always used vanilla and cinnamon. Try using sourdough bread for a sweet/sour experience. Also add coarsely ground walnuts to top, tamped down on bread, when placed on griddle, to add protein."

"My 16 year old doubled the recipe and added cinnamon, his brothers agree "best french toast!" There is a reason why this recipe is a 5 star breakfast staple. Enjoy adding your own flavors to this wonderfully simple french toast."
