Our family loves these, we

Our family loves these, we dont use pepper because its so tasty with syrup or powdered sugar. the little toast from the centers can be solo or add an egg to the group of toasts. this is awesome when eggs are 50 cents a dozen and bread is a dollar, save more from scratch.
