Oh yum, this was delicious! The buttery honey syrup with chopped nuts was so delicious hat I might use it for all my pancake, waffles and French toast recipes. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Bayhill. Made for your Week 7 win in the Football pool.

While this french toast was good, there wasn't a big difference in flavor from traditional french toast. Yet it has a lot more calories. DH was the only one who used the honey pecan topping. I tried this with an apple cinnamon pancake mix once as well.

Yum! Made this as directed but ended up having to use maple syrup because I discovered at the last minute that my honey was hard. Easy and good. Thanks Bayhill for a nice breakfast. Congrats on your Football win!
