French Toast, Breakfast

"I find it completely odd, if you go to any local restaurant in Erie PA, their version of 'french toast' is simply to a very light coating of egg only bread and fry it. It drives me up the wall. I rather have scrabbled eggs on toast, please."

- MetricCook

The brown sugar makes this recipe. Awesome french toast recipe, highly recommend the powdered sugar.

This recipe is really good.. The nutmeg was a little over powering, next time I will use less, other than that, this is a really good recipe.

This is my favorite french toast recipe ....minus nutmeg with a little extra brown sugar. Made both regular-sliced white bread and raisin bread. Enjoyed by everyone.
