French Toast Recipe

Favorite Restaurant Breakfast Recipe

This French Toast Recipe is loved by children. But I also found out a lot of adults like this French Toast with Strawberry Butter, too.

Here is how this restaurant recipe came about: A soccer coach wanted to meet with his soccer team (15 children) and several parents in the restaurant's banquet room on a Saturday morning.

He wanted a buffet breakfast that the kids would eat.

One of the items developed for this breakfast meeting was this recipe for French toast.

The kids cleaned their plates and asked for more, and the adults did likewise.

Got kids coming to your home to spend the night? Here is a restaurant breakfast recipe that will make you a hero.
