I am not a fan of french toast. One day,I had a brunch for some of my girlfriends,one of them requested french toast,I checked several recipes and came up with my own recipe by combining a few ideas. Everyone loved the french toast and started calling it "Patsy's Special". I thought I'd share it here. I also make this french toast with raisin bread.
