Anyone that has followed my blog knows how much I love a good breakfast. Nutrtionists say a good breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It jumpstarts your metabolism and fuels your body with the necessary energy to get your brain ready for learning and your muscles for getting through a rough day. Well, even though this french toast is just a
tiny bit, ok, a medium Bit, OK a lot decadent, they will still give you a jumpstart. And if you are like me, a nap shortly after. Enjoy! (That nap!)

- At this point you can put the French toast in the fridge (assuming that you're doing this the night before) or you can pop the dish in a 350 degree oven. Bake until the eggs and milk are no longer runny and have set up.
- After you take the French toast out of the oven, dust with powdered sugar and drizzle the chocolate sauce over the entire baking dish. Top with strawberries, mini chocolate chips, whipped cream and pecans.
