I don’t know about you, but I had a pretty great Valentine’s Day with my one true love. I made a romantic breakfast for us, and my husband even lent a helping hand in the kitchen a little (I will have more on that in a bit). My husband managed to sneak is Valentine’s Day gift into the dining room while I was making breakfast and I didn’t notice until I started setting the table. He had this big ol grin on his face and I couldn’t help but smile cause it was just sweet and adorable!
My husband wanted to have heart shaped sausage with our french toast, so he offered to make the sausage heart shaped. I would say he did a pretty awesome job considering he used his hands to shape them.
Now for my favorite part, the recipe. Just thinking about this recipe makes my mouth water! This is not your average French Toast though. I made this recipe triple decker and I used DF chocolate milk for dipping the french toast! YUMMMMMMMY!!!!!!! If you think you will have to wait until February 14, 2017 to try out this recipe, think again! This would also be great for any special occasion such as Anniversary, Birthday, or just as a just because I love you breakfast for your one and only.
