(3 Votes)
35 Min

Our version of French toast is like having dessert for breakfast! A rich brown sugar glaze with crunchy pecans tops off buttery bread for a breakfast that'll have everybody singing, 'OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!'

What You'll Need

  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 8 (1-inch-thick) slices French bread
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 (2-ounce) package chopped pecans (3/4 cup)

What to Do

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a wire whisk until blended. Pour 1 cup egg mixture into a greased 9- x 13-inch baking dish, place bread in dish; pour remaining egg mixture over bread. Cover and chill 8 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, and pecans in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and microwave at HIGH setting 30 seconds. Pour over bread.
  3. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes or until set and golden.

Cant please everyone. Great fast breakfast, especially christmas. My family loves it.

I have been a fan of praline candy for many years, but this recipte did not work. It is more a bread pudding....not french toast. The egg-bread should be fried in a pan with melted butter to be a true french toast. Please make note and change your recipe accordingly.

Why do I feel like there is something missing from this recipe? It looks good, as far as she took it but, the oven recipe sort of 'drops off.'

With March being Frozen Food Month, we thought it would be fun to share a recipe that was inspired by a handful of items we picked up after checking out all that the freezer aisle has to offer.
