Pear Sundae French Toast Recipe

Coming upon this creation in a potluck line, I left with a full plate and the recipe. Now my family "oohs" and "aahs" as soon as I bring out this fruit-topped favorite. It's great for brunch or as a fanciful finish to a meal. -Carol Schumacher, Menoken, North Dakota

"With or without icecream this is soooo good!

I make this for dessert with the ice cream, and for breakfast I just use maple syrup. My kids love it!"
