Delicious! The only change I made was the bread. I used 12 slices of cinnamon swirl bread. It was so good, we will have this again and again.

For a simple breakfast, this is pretty good. I have also combined it with a couple of different recipes to make a french toast bake. For the bake, I use texas toast or brioche bread, add 1/2 tsp of nutmeg (freshly grated if you can), a 1 tsp of cinnamon and 2 Tbsp to 1/4 cup brown sugar. Then, in a preheated 350 degree oven,, coat pan with butter, layer or tear bread then pour over the egg mixture and bake about 25 minutes. Easy for a small crowed but the recipe as it stands is great, too. We don't use syrup but do sprinkle liberal amounts of powdered sugar on the finished french toast or french toast bake.

Good basic French Toast, though I was expecting more "pop" from the vanilla.

Perfect recipe to teach my son to make french toast! We used whole milk instead of skim, next time we'll add a bit of cinnamon to the egg mixture.

This recipe gives you a basic french toast. It is a good recipe if you want something simple to try. The sugar gives the toast some sweetness while the vanilla adds a nice mellow vanilla flavor. I did add cinnamon and sugar to the top of mine for added flavor.

Delicious and simple! Only thing I mixed up was using skim milk instead of 2%. My young daughters are picky eaters and were hesitant to try it, so I cut it into french toast sticks and they gobbled it right up. Will definitely be making this one again!!!

Simple and easily adaptable to a larger family. I used vanilla almond milk in lieu of regular milk in order to get a more vanilla flavor. I also used a chocolate chip bread for fun and my kids loved it. Each ate at least 2 slices and my 2 year old labelled it Super Awesome and cleaned his plate. Love an easy meal where no one complains. A keeper!

I've been using vanilla extract for years, but try maple along with the vanilla extract. I did this when my daughter was small and we had to leave early, she could have her french toast in the car with no mess. I made bunches and just froze them, worked well just dropping them into the toaster. Also, I've been using Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste recently and it is an improvement over the extract. Enjoy!

Loved the flavor the vanilla gives it.

Delicious. Used a tad less sugar, but doubled the vanilla extract. Try almond extract sometime!
