Even the latest of night owls will admit that The Best French Toast makes mornings so much better! What makes this the greatest of all time, you might wonder? The delicious simplicity. It takes all the original flavors like sweet cinnamon, rich butter, and tastebud-pleasing vanilla and really hones in on them. No fancy techniques or equipment are needed either; you just dunk your favorite doughy bread in all the mixings and plop it on a griddle until you achieve that beautiful golden-brown goodness we all know and love to eat. We guess it's true; the early bird really does get the worm–or in this case, some of The Best French Toast!
