“Another copycat recipe I found somewhere. From The original recipe called for butter to fry the french toast in. I find it is not needed when you cook this on a nonstick grill or in a well seasoned cast iron frying pan. I have increased the amount of cinnamon in it, and added some nutmeg as well. You can make this up and freeze it for a quick breakfast, pop a couple of slices in the toaster to reheat. I normally use bread that is cut about 3/4" thick. If you let your bread soak in the mixture you will not get as many servings. You will also have to watch that it is cooked through to avoid the risk of salmonella from the eggs. Serve with your favorite syrups, fresh fruit and whipped cream, or a warm fruit sauce.”
