42 French Toast Recipes That'll Save Your Morning

This is the breakfast worth splurging on.

Completely Delicious

The way we see it, there are really only two dishes worth indulging in at the breakfast table: an ample stack of pancakes or a big ol' plate of French toast. And of course, both of those have to be served with a side of maple syrup -- the real stuff only.

While we're fans of all breakfast options, French toast recipes have a one-up on the others because it takes a not-so-appetizing ingredient, stale bread, and turns it into something we never want to stop eating. That's pretty impressive. We have the Ancient Romans to thank for French toast recipes (not the French as its name would suggest).

French toast hits the spot no matter how it's prepared, be it dead simple or seriously elaborate -- and we may have found all the possibilities for you below. Here are 42 different French toast recipes to help make your mornings super sweet.
