    Question: You say to cut off the crusts, but I still see them on the bread in the picture. Is this just a guideline? Even still, I want to just reach through the screen, pluck this out and eat it. None for you! All mine! lol

    I found this recipe on epicurious.com and made it this weekend. I'm 47 and this is the aboslute best French Toast I have ever had! It is so easy and terribly sinful. I'm giving you a 5 of course. I was going to share it on the site, but you beat me to it. I'd recommend this to anyone.
