      It’s really easy! I’m making it for Christmas morning. 🙂 I’m sure that you’ll like it.

    Is it egg-ie though? The boys don’t care for eggs much. Walt likes French toast, just bread, egg, milk and cinnamon. If I make it for Wade, I have to leave it on the griddle for quite awhile. Just curious…

      I have never found it to be too eggy, even though I’m an egg fan so I might not have noticed. It always seems like the bread absorbs a lot of the egg, so there isn’t much of an egg texture. You could even make a half batch just to try it at first. I think it will be a winner in the Price household, though. 🙂 It’s good reheated the next day, too.
