  • Considering healtiness, there is a growing trend against margarin and corn syrup. If they are substituted with healtier products, the recipe can be more preferable.

  • You can lighten this up a little.Use weight watcher bread ,sugar free syrup and fat free milk.Splenda brown sugar is ok but some reports state it as not a safe alternative to sugar. (Formaldehyde). I've decided not to use it. You can even do egg whites.I'll try it and report back.

  • If you like sweets and french toast this is great.But if you looking for diet food, stay away. We liked it!.

  • This is just as good with 1/2 to 2/3rds the amount of sugar. We usually add chopped walnuts or pecans to the syrup in the pan. It adds flavor and healthy oils to the diet.

  • Way too sweet. I placed a country style sausage between two slices of bread and poured egg/milk mixture over. Let sit overnight and baked the next morning. Served sandwich style with 10X sugar sprinkled over top. Let them put their own syrup on.

  • I would love it, also, as written. However, I hope to try it with Eggo, skim milk and Splenda Brown Sugar. (I have diabetes, and couldn't possibly indulge in this great looking recipe.

  • This was way too sweet and rich for our family - sure didn't need the maple syrup.

  • I did make this with Eggbeaters, Spenda brown sugar, and wheat bread and it was great!

  • Using Egg Beaters makes it just as good and better for your cholesterol.

  • This looks good. In an effort to reduce calories though, I will try this with Splenda brown sugar and sugar free syrup. In addition I will use whole grain white bread or wheat. Thanks! Can't wait to try it in a couple weeks when we go camping for Halloween. Looks perfect for a cool crisp morning.
