French toast is always a hit in this house. We're all breakfast lovers, except I don't really like to be the one to make the breakfast until I have my coffee. This recipe was awesome for that problem! I mixed everything up the night before, poured all the goodness over some thick sliced bread, and it gets to spend the night in the fridge. In the morning, I took it out and let it get to room temperature-ish and baked it until it was delicious!
