Gingerbread French Toast, Average
Gingerbread cookies and sliceable gingerbread are irresistible -- that rich, spicy flavor is just too good. And finding a way to fit that flavor profile into breakfast? That's a reason to celebrate! However, the nutritional problems with French toast are easy to spot: whole eggs, carby bread, fat-packed butter, etc. But we've made over a bazillion different kinds of French toast, so we were up to the challenge. It was just a matter of getting the yummy flavors into that egg wash for the perfect sugar 'n spice taste. Give your breakfast the holiday flare you crave... Guilt-free!
