Mr. Howell's Left Bank French Toast

“From "Mary Ann's Gilligan's Island Cookbook" by Dawn Wells (Mary Ann herself), Ken Beck and Jim Clark. I got this cookbook in a swap and it's got some very humorous quotes and recipe titles. This recipe for French toast is posted for ZWT8 - France. Did you know Mr. Howell once said, "If it weren't for the money, I'd rather be poor."”
