This one goes right into my Best of 2021 cookbook! Best french toast ever. I loved the way the almond stuck to the french toast and added that extra crunch. The butter is spectacular, so do not skip that!! Thanks so much Dee!!

Wow, this is one of the best french toasts I've ever tried. Kudos Marra on making it into my Best of 2020 Cookbook. This recipe is awesome, quick and easy to make with delicious results. The french toast has the nicest flavor and the perfect amount of sweetness and nuts. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make often. Served with candied ginger ale and maple bacon for an incredible meal. Made FYC tag game.
