When I was younger, I was allergic to pretty much everything, one of those things being eggs. That meant my faulty immune system prevented me from devouring the fluffy deliciousness that is french toast. 11 years later, I am very fortunate to say that french toast was the first food I tried when I outgrew my allergy. Unveiling a whole new world of flavor, french toast has crept its way onto my frequently eaten and cherished foods list in both my kitchen and in a variety of the best places to get french toast. 

Nowadays, I am a self-proclaimed french toast connoisseur, and you can find me devouring every last bite. Whether it be breakfast, brunch, lunch, or breakfast for dinner, there are no limits set on when one can enjoy french toast. It is always welcomed.
