French Toast Done Right

We don’t get to have leisurely breakfasts together very often, but when we do, it’s always a hit.   I call it French Toast done right for a few reasons.  Most importantly, it is prepaheadable, in fact,  it needs to be made a day ahead the bread can soak up all that eggy goodness.  Perfect to add to a weekly meal plan.

But that’s only one of many fabulous things about this recipe.

  • Meal prep friendly
  • Freezer Friendly
  • Serves a crowd
  • Reheats well in toaster
