PB&J French Toast Cups

Some days you don’t know what you’re craving. Your fridge is bare, or maybe there’s just nothing tickling your taste buds. These are the days you put together a basic PB&J (though it will never be as good as Mom’s). Since you’re a grown-up now, you could at least get a little creative with the brown bag classic. What you need is a fancier, more refined peanut butter and jelly ““ something the French may know a thing or two about. Thus, the PB&J French Toast Cup was born.
