Do you love classic french toast, but hate going to a restaurant just to have your beloved breakfast food?  After you make this french toast at home, you will not be ordering it in a restaurant ever again!

I have such wonderful memories of this Sunday morning breakfast food. My dad would make this french toast after Mass for our the family and anyone else who found out my dad was making breakfast!

Now, I have a certain family member who loves french toast as much as I did as a kid and would always bug me to take her out to breakfast…until I started making french toast just like my dad, at home using his recipe.  Now, sometimes we even make it for dinner!

    Yum… I need to try this for myself! I always add vanilla extract to my French toast mix, and it makes all the difference in the world. Thanks for sharing your dad’s version!

    French toast is my favorite! My recipe is close except for the honey, which of course I need to try out. And for me, the more cinnamon, the better!

    When we had breakfast for dinner my Dad would always make waffles and homemade syrup. Yum!

    That’s almost exactly how I make it except for the honey. It was my kid’s idea to add vanilla and cinnamon, both of which he loves! We make this A LOT at our house. 🙂

    While I love a “twist” on an old recipe or something revamped, there is something about enjoying the classics! This is on my breakfast to do list!!
