This spice flavor bomb French toast will have you saying more please until it is all gone

 Who does not love a good French toast? It is sweet, fills the house with the wonderful aroma of vanilla, warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and more. Heck if you are unfortunate enough to have had one too many martinis or glasses of champagne the night before, it works well as a hangover cure - at least that is what we have heard. Anyways, enough about that enjoy the video and recipe below.
