This looks delicious Faith! I learned very young how to make french toast, but I have never attempted stuffed, but have always wanted to! Maybe I finally will. Have you ever made French toast with sourdough bread? Sounds wrong but it's delicious! Oh and I bet adding nutella into the mix would be tasty!
P.S. I love the way you did the photos on this post.
