A Wonderful Breakfast Traditional

During the summer, my dad and I wake up at 5 am to watch the Tour de France. One morning we decided to run to the grocery store to get ingredients to make French Toast. Eating French Toast early in the morning with my dad quickly became one of my favorite summer traditions.¬†Throughout the summer I tried different breads, flavors, etc until I created this recipe. This is a wonderful breakfast to serve overnight guests during the holiday season. ( I couldn’t resist sharing an old photo of him on his bike!)
