Happy National French Toast Day!
While I don’t know the origin of National French Toast Day, any day that requires that we cook and eat french toast is a good day for me.
In honor of National French Toast Day, I’m sharing my very special french toast recipe with all of you. This recipe is a favorite in my house and will definitely be a favorite in yours! Feel free to adjust the spices to your liking. We tend to sprinkle on a little extra cinnamon in our house. While any bread will work, we’ve found that a thick cut challah bread produces the yummiest results.
