awesome! i did soak mine even though they told us not to--but not for too long b/c this bread is pretty absorbant. The bread made it great too.

The toast turned out way to soggy. And I think 4 eggs was too many I had all the mixture left at the end and plus the egg taste overpowered every other taste.

Delicious recipe and so easy! Good with regular old white bread too, not just the thick slices the recipe calls for. Mmmmmm.

Couldn't be easier or tastier. I used Challah bread sliced about 1' thick, and I did soak a little bit (couldn't help myself0. We loved it!!

Really good, simple french toast. I haven't tried it with the Hawaiian bread the recipe recommends but it has worked very well for all the other kinds of bread I have used it with.

I couldn't find King's brand bread at our grocery store so I used the Orowheat version. It was still fantastic, but I think it would have been better if we used the King's brand.
