When my in-laws came for the weekend, I of course wanted to impress them. I've had this recipe for a while but was to lazy to try it on just us. So, when they came it was the perfect time to try it and they would rant and rave about it. Doesn't everyone love praise?! I had my Bread Machine Honey Wheat Bread made the day before so I could use the "good stuff" on the French Toast. Everything tastes better with homemade bread. I woke up early to get it all ready. I put it all together and VICTORY! My father in-law said when we were done eating, "I've never been much of a french toast fan, but this is the best french toast I've ever had." SCORE! The soft crunch of the pecans will send you to the ROOF! This is INCREDIBLE! Try it you will just die and go to heaven!
Pecan Crusted French Toast
1/4 c. Milk
1 1/2 c. Copped Pecans
1 tsp. Cinnamon
8 Slices whole wheat bread (Bread Machine Honey Wheat Bread)
Preheat oven to 200 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Grab 2 shallow bowls, in one shallow bowl place your eggs and milk and whisk until combined. In the other shallow bowl place the chopped pecans and the cinnamon, stir until pecans are coated with the cinnamon. Cut your bread into the shape desired (squares, triangles etc). Grab your pan or griddle and turn the heat to medium/medium high. Lightly grease your pan. Dip one slice of bread, into the egg and milk mixture then into the pecans. Make sure both sides are coated, then lay on your hot pan. Repeat with the rest of the bread. Flip your french toast with a spatula to cook the other side. When your french toast is done cooking, remove from the pan and place in the oven on the parchment paper lined baking sheet to keep warm. When all of your french toast is done cooking you will be able to take the whole pan out of the oven and sit down and eat all together! GENIUS! Serve with your favorite syrup. DELISH!
*Keeping the french toast in the oven didn't dry it out. It was just as wonderful as it could be!
