French Toast Skillet takes the rich, custardy flavors of traditional French toast and cranks up the decadence! Thick-cut bread is soaked in a creamy sauce and then coated in a thick, buttery, and sweet caramel sauce. Cooked to a gorgeous golden brown, French Toast Skillet makes a beautiful breakfast that will help your day feel bright.
