No brain fart, that's exactly what I had in mind. I had a chance to try it this morning and it worked pretty well. The biggest thing I noticed was that this method is a lot less tolerant of unevenly sliced bread.

Griddle & Skillet vs. Griddler

Yes, I did. But, only yogurt, to make up for yesterdays incredible calorie intake. It was the 10 year anniversary of our first date, so we were celebrating.

Read your review of the Griddler and it seems you have had no luck with it, at all. I have had great results with steaks, paninis and breakfast foods. I've used all settings and both sets of plates. Cleaning is no problem either. I have zero counter space and set it up on top of the stove or beside the sink (18 inch wide counter there).

Here's hoping you have luck finding the best way to cook French Toast for yourself.

When it comes to the Griddler, I seem to be the sole naysayer. It's been discussed on this site and most everyone else is happy with theirs.

Congrats!

Our 10 year anniversary of our first date and 7 year wedding anniversary are just 4 months away.

I surprised my Mom and my Aunt with home made buttermilk biscuits for breakfast this morning. As I was washing up the dishes they were talking and all I heard my Mom say to my Aunt was, " I don't know, I never taught him to make biscuits from scratch....I use Bisquick"

ROFL! I've heard comments like that, too. Growing up it was baked chicken, spaghetti and mac n cheese or tuna casserole. I'm the food adventurer in my family.

Breakfast this morning was a chocolate bunny, given to me by a patient, and a handful of Jelly Bellys.
