Tasty breakfast treat
So I wouldn't really call this french toast. If you make this expecting french toast, you'll be disappointed. As a breakfast treat, it's fairly tasty and I would make it again. It's extremely simple too.
The bread slices definitely need to be thick, but if you cut it too thick you mainly taste bread. My advice: do what the author says and make sure you only cut it one inch thick.
Also, the peach mixture doesn't really brown in the pan. It's still good, it just didn't get that nice golden, crunchy texture I was hoping for. It's still tasty and simple so go ahead, give it a go!
