Delicious recipe and so easy! Good with regular old white bread too, not just the thick slices the recipe calls for. Mmmmmm.

First time making French Toast and it was yummy! I used cinnamon raisin bread instead of King's Hawaiian. My only problem with this recipe is that they don't tell you what level of heat to fry...

Couldn't be easier or tastier. I used Challah bread sliced about 1' thick, and I did soak a little bit (couldn't help myself0. We loved it!!

Really good, simple french toast. I haven't tried it with the Hawaiian bread the recipe recommends but it has worked very well for all the other kinds of bread I have used it with.

I couldn't find King's brand bread at our grocery store so I used the Orowheat version. It was still fantastic, but I think it would have been better if we used the King's brand.
