"These French toast slices have creamy vanilla flavor from convenient pudding mix, plus a hint of cinnamon," relates Linda Bernhagen of Plainfield, Illinois. "We like to top them with syrup or powdered sugar and fresh berries." TIP: As a change of pace, try butterscotch pudding instead of vanilla.

"Best French Toast I have ever tasted! I've made it with both Texas toast bread and sliced French bread. Both were great! Now I make sure I always have a package of Cook and Serve Vanilla Pudding mix in my cupboard:)"

"My boys loved this french toast. As several others also mentioned, do not, I repeat, do not, use instant pudding. It does not work, at all!"

"Oh and first time I mistakenly used instant pudding so it was really mushy and soft..... So make sure you use cook and serve pudding mix.

Also, I put 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon as the recipe said, even though I love cinnamon I would say it's a bit too much. I would halve the cinnamon next time and also lower the heat but toast it longer to get a more crunchy feeling:D Generally I like my second trial it delicious and a wonderful sensation~~"

"It's really good with Texas Toast, but if you use bread of thinner slices, it would turn out too soft.~"
