Maple Pecan French Toast

Maple Pecan French Toast
Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients for French Toast:

1 loaf of white bread (I got mine from Panera) 
5-6 large eggs
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1-2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/3 cup milk
pinch of salt

Directions for French Toast: 

1. In a wide bowl beat your eggs, milk, salt, sugar, and cinnamon for about a minute until incorporated.
2. Slice your bread about an inch thick per slice. You should be able to get about 8-10 slices per loaf.
3. Dip your bread into your egg mixture and make sure it is completely coated on both sides. The bread only needs to be in the mixture for about 10 seconds per slice.
4. Place your bread on a medium heated pan. You should be able to fit about 3-4 slices per pan. Cook each side until golden brown. About 1 minute on each side depending on thickness.

Ingredients for Maple Pecan Topping:

1 cup Pecan halves
1 1/2 cup Real Maple Syrup
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cinnamon
pinch of salt

Directions for Maple Pecan Topping:

1. In a saucepan toast your pecans for 1-2 minutes on medium.
2. Add your butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt to the pecans and let simmer for another 5-6 minutes.
3. Pour over your French Toast and enjoy warm!

I made up this recipe last weekend and it was so yummy!! I was given a loaf of Panera bread that I didn't know what to do with, so this was what I came up with. The kids devoured their French Toast and my husband, who previously had been the reigning French Toast champion in the house, tipped his hat to me! Mmmmm, those warm pecans on top of the sweet bread takes breakfast to a whole next level. Divine!
