How to Make The Best Pecan French Toast Ever!


  1. The Night Before...
    Slice French bread into 20 slices, 1" each. Arrange slices in a generously buttered 9x13" flat baking dish in 2 rows.
    Overlap the slices.
    In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and beat with a rotary beater or whisk until blended, but not too bubbly. Pour mixture over the bread slices, making sure all slices are covered evenly with the milk-egg mixture in between the slices.
    Cover with foil and refrigerate over night.
  2. The Next Morning...
    Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine topping ingredients and spread evenly between and over bread.
    Bake for 40 minutes. Serve with warm syrup. Enjoy!
