The holiday season officially starts with the Toronto Santa Claus parade this weekend.  That means it is time to bring on the hot chocolate, extra blankets and plenty of comfort food!

Just thinking about comfort food  brings me back to my own childhood and my mom making piles of French toast for a special lunch smothered in maple syrup.  There is just something about French toast that just speaks to my soul.  Must be all those delicious eggs that go into it!

There is seriously nothing like fresh Canadian Grade A eggs.  They are filling, full of protein and essential nutrients and they are just plain old delicious. 

We can all feel good when cooking with Canada Grade A eggs knowing they come from Canadian farms known for their quality, & freshness.  Canadian egg farmers are proud of what they have to offer and that includes eggs farmed in a variety of ways to suit your lifestyle from conventional, enriched, free run, free range and organic.  It’s good to know though that no matter how the egg has been farmed, all variety of eggs in Canada come from hens that are not given hormones or steroids.

    I like to read the comments when I make a new recipe. Did anyone actually read all these comments? Majority of them are about how wonderful eggs are – not about the recipe! Sorry to sound negative… but I’m disappointed in all these fake comments – giving you the impression that many people have written a rave review about this recipe!
