I first made this great tasting French Toast for CHRISTMAS IN 2003, before my husband and I were married. We all really loved it and it has been a favorite ever since. My comments about the recipe was SUPER. It is a recipe I got from my TASTE OF HOME COOKING UP COUNTRY BREAKFASTS cookbook. It is simple & easy and goes great during the cold winter mornings, but works anytime of the year. I made it this morning to take a picture so I could also post,since I didn't have one from 2003. I am sure you will agree this is a great way to start the morning. I used Whole Grain English Muffins.

    You are now ready to enjoy a great tasting Breakfast Brunch.I used the Thomas's whole Grain English Muffins with 8 grams of fiber per serving. I am sure you can use other breads as well in this recipe, Hawiian Bread, Brioch, or whole wheat. Any kind will probably work. This was my first time using English muffins but they really do work, don't forget to let them soak in the egg mixture.
