We love having big American breakfasts in my house so French toast is something I make quiet often. This version is my favorite because of the buttery croissants. I like to sprinkle powdered sugar all over the top and serve fresh fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice for a complete breakfast.
By the way have you ever wondered if French toast is really from France? I have because although the name implies that it’s a very traditional American breakfast food. I am still not sure if France is where it hails from but it seems that everyone all over the world has a version. You can check it out here.
