My picky 6-year old son said, "Thanks for making this Mom. Can you make it every day?" My 8-year old had a similar reaction. I've made it for them twice now. I used sourdough bread (that's what we had in the house) so the slices weren't as thick as recommended. I think they liked the novelty of the smaller pieces, but if it didn't taste good, that would not have been enough to keep their interest. It was very easy to make and it disappeared quickly. We will certainly make this recipe again.

We love this kid-friendly French toast created by Cindy Bates. Regular French toast can be soggy in the middle, but bite-size cubes mean more crispy surface area.
