Tried this recipe this morning on my son who stayed home from school due to a bad head cold. I used whole wheat bread, all natural grape jelly/preserves & pure vanilla extract, skipped the salt, olive oil instead of canola, and I sprinkled cinnnamon and sugar on the bread after placing it in the skillet. It was GREAT! We loved it!! It was the perfect balance of crispiness on the outside from the cinnamon sugar, and gooey in the middle! I will definitely be keeping this recipe as one of our family favorites! Thinking of making it a Thanksgiving breakfast tradition!!!

I love pb&j sandwiches and I love french toast. The combination is even better!

Just made them for breakfast and they were very good. They are fast and easy to make. Used olive oil instead of canola and rasberry preserves instead of strawberry. Will definitely make again!

I made this for Sunday breakfast and it was a huge disappointment. The sandwich was too thick for the custard to cook through, so the inside was soggy. It also made the PB & J mushy and the bread kept slipping off each other. I agree with jswillen that the combo was not appealing. My husband took out the innards and just ate the soggy bread. I could only eat half of mine.

Served this to my family (ages 5 and up) for dinner one night. Everyone loved it and is asking for it again. It was a nice easy weeknight meal and delicious.

DEVOURED by 10 year old boys! I used a thick all-natural, fresh ground PB which might help the soggy problem tzevaf reported. That and not over-soaking it in the egg bath. I served it with real maple syrup and it was a huge hit. This is a definite keeper for all future sleepovers!

This was a disappointment. I love both French toast and PB&J, but the combination was not appealing. I thought my kids might like it, but neither ate more than two bites.
