Oh I remember having this the very first time, while eating outside on a covered porch, overlooking the ocean in Puerto Rico. There was a buffet style breakfast, and someone making omlets, and another station was preparing French toast. Breakfast eaten outdoors is so luxurious and this was delicious.

How To Make
