This is just perfect to make for Christmas morning as most everything is done the night before so you don’t have to give up too much of your “family” time slaving away in the kitchen. It also works well for a nice Sunday morning breakfast.

French Toast is one of those things that always brings a warm happy feeling to my heart. I think it is important to sit down at the kitchen table as often as possible as a family. Usually, it is just a dinner thing, except on the weekends. If there isn’t too much going on we are able to eat as a family on both Saturday and Sunday. However, it usually just works out to Sunday with the different schedules going on.

This is one of those recipes that tastes like it took a great deal of effort and time to prepare but in reality, it is pretty quick and very easy.

We hope you enjoy this yummy French Toast and will share your thoughts with us.
