Have you ever heard the expression, “That’s so good it makes me want to slap my mama!”? Usually I hear it down south. I don’t know why you’d want to slap your mama because your food tastes good but that’s what they say. This French toast recipe, though, is “slap your mama” good. It’s yet another recipe I found through MOPS. It’s a great one for lazy weekend mornings and would be perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas morning. Or a special quarantine breakfast for you homebodies. I hope you enjoy it as much as I used to. I always paired it with sausage links but you could serve it with patties or bacon. You could even serve ham if you want. Enjoy!
P.S. This needs to be made the night before and refrigerated overnight. Just telling you so you don’t start making it one morning, get halfway through the directions and then start cussing.
