I did not have challah bread, I used whole wheat bread instead. I also did not have raspberry liqueur, I just omitted it and increased the vanilla extract. I cooked this on my non-stick griddle. This was good but quite sweet--the kids especially liked this, they each ate two sandwiches. The sugar in the egg wash was unnecessary, in my opinion. I would make this again but omit the sugar in the egg wash. Read More

2.7.17 I didn't have challah bread but did use some really good quality homestyle bread from the bakery. I really couldn't taste the raspberry liqueur and if I were to make this again think I'd just use raspberry extract. It was good but I'm a PBJ gal so I knew this one was a sure thing! Tried a new flavor combo today. Used strawberry jam skipped the liqueur and substituted a small amount of coconut extract. Garnished with a sprinkle of confectioners sugar and some fresh strawberries for a tasty breakfast. Read More

Seriously why have I never made this before? I really liked it. I made a few changes but the idea is just great. I didn't have any liqueur; I used wheat bread; I used 1/4 of the sugar called for and won't put any next time; and I used crunchy peanut butter. The peanut butter and jelly is all melted between the French Toast--so yummy! No syrup needed but I did sprinkle on some powdered sugar. Read More

It tastes really nice.I used strawberry jam instead of mixed berry jam,reduced the sugar.I used crunchy peanut butter and i regret it(it gave it a slightly bitter taste).It would have tasted better with creamy peanut butter. Just a suggestion, but glaze it with honey and it will taste fantastic! Read More

I used wheat bread Truvia instead of sugar blackberry jam and I skipped the liqueur. I think it's something kids would like. As for me I don't think I will be craving this anytime soon. Read More
