Quick & Easy French Toast

If you haven't realized it by now, I am all for a simple recipe.  It is easy to lose me at over 30 minutes of prep time and 30 minutes of cook time (can the church say "Amen").  This French toast recipe comes from my mom's personal cookbook arsenal.  My mother has a cookbook of handwritten recipes that she guards with her life.  I was honestly surprised she let me share two of them with my blogging fam.

As you know from a previous blog post, I'm TEAM Trader Joe's all the way.  When I first saw their Frech Brioche, I knew it would be perfect to incorporate into my mom's French toast recipe.   Be sure to check out my mom's buttermilk pancakes that I shared on the blog last month for more Brunch At Home.  #SoniaBeKnowin
