Get your self some GOOD maple syrup and DIVE IN!!
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
5 1-inch thick slices of french bread or texas toast
2 cups finely chopped pecans
In a med size bowl beat together eggs, milk, vanilla & cinnamon. Dip bread into egg mixture, coating both sides (let soak atleast 10 seconds), then dip into chopped pecans, pressing pecans into bread if necessary. Cook on a skillet over med heat about 2-3 min per side. To keep warm, place on single layer on a baking sheet in a 170 degree oven until done cooking all of the french toast (this also helps the egg to cook through, preventing soggy bread!)
We love to have breakfast for dinner at our house. I didn't want to make the usual french toast or pancakes. I had purchased Texas Toast to make some amazing "kicked up" grilled cheese sandwiches (and I still will, I promise), but decided to use it for french toast, instead. I had some pecans leftover from Easter & the wheels started turning...I have to say...I was very pleased with the outcome. Actually, more than pleased...these things are to DIE for! Make some up this weekend for breakfast, you will not be disappointed!
