"Get out of the French toast hum-drums with this kicked up version. It helps if the bread is at least a day old. TIME DOESN'T INCLUDE CHILING TIME OF 8 HOURS. If serving for breakfast, you can put it together right before going to bed and pop it in the fridge. That makes Saturday morning French toast really easy!"
