My mom’s friend, Anita made this stuffed french toast for my bridal brunch when I got married. I’ve had the recipe for a while but have just never gotten around to making it. This past weekend my bible study had a surprise brunch for one of our friends and I thought I would make this. Everyone immediately asked for the recipe! It was so delicious!! This is definitely great for a brunch because you make it the night before and then bake it the morning of.
