Author Notes

Decadent is on overused word. When referring to food it is usually describing something that is not healthy. This French toast is decadent...it is tooth achingly sweet and has lots of sugar and calories. I had some left over meringue batter and just threw in a few more ingredients for French Toast. Fresh fruit, like berries, give the recipe a little acidic kick to balance the intense sweetness. It you want to make this a healthy choice...just throw away the toast and eat the berries! —dymnyno

This looks delicious--I have egg whites left over from today's ice cream, so tomorrow I'll try the meringue FT!
