    Okay, so the name of this recipe is a little long; but you have to give credit where credit is due, so thanks Aunt Mary for this great breakfast recipe. The French toast recipe is easy but does require some forethought and a bit of time to put together. Having guest in for Easter? This breakfast is worthy of the best country Bed and Breakfast lodges. Put it together, let it sit overnight and get the coffee ready. Your guests will follow their noses into the kitchen.
