French toast greatness ... or at least ... goodness?

Where is supurb (to you) French toast being served?

I don't eat French toast often. A few weeks ago, Alvarado Bar and Grill was out of pumpkin pancakes. Grudgingly I ordered the baked apple French toast ... which turned out to be quite tasty ... not upscale ... just trashy good.

Two thick, ultra-custardy pieces of French toast had a layer of baked apple slices that covered every inch of the top with a blanket of comforting cinnamon-y scrumptiousness. Generous plump, warm raisins were scattered everywhere. The whole thing was topped with the finest aerosol whipped cream, a la Reddi-whip.

Maple syrup was there for pouring pleasure ... but really ... this was a challenging dish as it was ... delicious ... but killer calories. I drizzled a tiny bit on one piece and it actully was good. Couldn't possibly up the flavor more, but didn't push the toast beyond sweetness.

Two people splitting the dish would be filled. .

I like all French Toast ... from huaute toast to trailer toast. Actually ... my memories are more of the latter. My favorite FT was Bob Big Boy's deep-fried French toast. Anyone deep-frying French toast these days like Bob's?

Any more culinary correct versions out there? I hear Rick & Ann's makes good French toast?
