My family LOVES this! I used thicker wheat sandwich bread and i only needed 7 slices to cover the recipe. And then i made the topping from Food Hero Blueberry Bling and put it on top of the french toast before i cooked it. My familys fav breakfast recipe!
Good, I served it topped with strawberry yogurt.
Really liked the french toast. It was just the right sweetness level.
