My introduction to French Toast came early in my childhood.  I spent the night at a friend’s house and the next morning, my friend asked me if I wanted French Toast for breakfast. I had no idea what it was. Well, my young friend proceeded to make it for us. I remember the cinnamon-y aroma and how the bread slices puffed up a little as they cooked. Once I finally got to taste it, I thought it was heavenly.  Considering my friend’s youthful age and lack of considerable cooking experience, it wasn’t cooked to technical perfection.  But, I loved it anyway and loved my friend for making it for me. I’ve made lots of French Toast since and I’d like to think I’ve stepped up my game with Overnight French Toast with Fresh Blueberry Orange Syrup. Be sure to scroll down the page and find out how to enter to win $250 in Wish Farms’ consumer recipe contest.
