    Galley Wench's Note:

    People have been making fun of the railroad for years, but no one jokes about their legendary French Toast. The train might have run late, but when indulging in a breakfast like this, who cared? I realize the cream adds calories, but suggest that you resist the temptation to use milk! It's worth the extra time on the treadmill! NOTE: Besure to use stale bread otherwise you're french toast may be soggy!

      This is a fantastic recipe! I loved it. I used wheat bread and added about a 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. It is so rich and wonderful tasting, thanks for the recipe!

      This was yummy! I never have heard of a method like this one. It worked quite well. A few pieces of the french toast did taste just a tish bit oily, but after i doused it in syrup I didn't notice, lol. I used some thick texas toast for my bread. Worked great! It was a great Sunday breakfast. Thanks for sharing!
