I made this recipe a few months ago when I had
some friends over for breakfast.
It was absolutely the most delicious
French Toast I have ever had.
You can find Texas Toast in the bread aisle of your grocery store.
It's thick sliced white bread.
You WANT to use Texas Toast.
Do not try to use regular white bread.
