Saturday Morning French Toast

It's Saturday morning, what could be more appropriate than sharing one of my favorite breakfast recipes? Let me begin by admitting that I have never been a big fan of big breakfasts. Well, making them at least. I hate slaving over the oven making french toast and pancakes and handing them out one at a time. Nobody ends up eating together, and I am the last person to eat; which is difficult for an impatient person like myself. I love french toast, and make the sacrifice for myself and my family on occasion. Until, that is, I found this great recipe. It eliminates my big breakfast pet peeves. I spend maybe ten minutes getting it ready, and then pop it into the oven and let it bake while I sit and visit freely with family. And best of all, we all sit down and eat it together. (Recipe pulled from my "recipe box".)
