This is a recipe for french toast (wentelteefjes in Dutch) with a thick and crunchy crust.

Below the best road to a successful breakfast. Something with taking a right to the oven with leftover bread. A quick stop at the fridge to make sure the bread soaks up all the flavors and milk.

And afterward straight to the stove for a sweet breakfast. It might take a bit more prepping in the morning, but I promise it is worth the wait.
