Love this recipe. I was short on time so we didn't bother soking the bread. We just dipped the bread in just before frying it up. We topped the french toast with berries.

This is much more filling than regular french toast. I found that it was difficult to get the egg mixture to cook before the almonds started to burn. Perhaps my stove runs too hot.

This is an absolutely fabulous recipe and I am not a huge fan of almonds! I used soft french bread and followed the diretions for the most part, except that I did not fry in canola oil, but rath...

I found that I didn't need as many almonds as it said for pressing into the toast, but nonetheless-I won't make this only once. Yum!!

Delicious - made it for a birthday brunch for a group of ladies, together with a desert crepes, and breakfast casserole. No leftovers!

Thank God I tried this before serving for Fathers Day. Definately NOT worth the effort. Almonds added a strange flavor. Use lots of Maple syrup if you try this! I won't be making this again.
