Actually, we make this recipe often. It came from our Bed and Breakfast in Hannibal, Missouri. We were featured in the Country magazine in 2010 and this was one that Taste of Home publishers chose to feature. Thank you all for the compliments. We're glad you love it as much as we and our guests do!! Judy & Norm Reagan, Innkeepers

This French Toast is very, very good. It's easy to make, the recipe as written is perfect. It's hard to leave it alone... :-) It's that good! I'm always on the lookout for good brunch recipes to serve to a large group of ladies for an annual Valentine's Day Brunch. This one is a keeper.

Really good! I substitute cinnamon for the nutmeg though.
