Now, I ask you (actually, I'm telling you!), how much better can a breakfast be than when eating this ABSOLUTELY GREAT FRENCH TOAST! Definitely a keeper, especially for when those special guests wake up in the morning! Thanks so much for a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
I made this for breakfast this morning and it was a big hit with my family. It's one of the best recipes for French toast we've ever had. It is going to be made again and would be great for company.
"I think this is the best french toast I've ever had," said my husband. It was really good and not hard to make at all. I used Smucker's all-fruit (or whatever they call theirs) and because I wanted to see how far they would go before grinding them all up, I only used 1 1/2 cups of pecans. That was just enough for 12 pieces of baguette bread cut a little diagonally. I should have halved the egg/milk mixture too. Oh well, now I know for *next* time! :) The amount of sauce was perfect for 12 baguette slices. Thanks! Reviewed for Please Review My Recipe tag.
This was a fantastic french toast. I loved the little crunch from the nuts as well as the flavor they added, and also the sweet but not too sweet berry sauce. I only wish the sauce was a bit thicker maybe, though the toast does a good job of soaking it up. I did find that the nuts tried to burn as someone else mentioned so our toast didn't get as done as we may have normally liked, but it was still great. Would be a great brunch or romantic meal for two.
This was REALLY good. The pecans really add a whole new dimension and the sauce is easy and not overly sweet. I did have a hard time getting it to cook through without burning the pecans, which maybe because they were fairly thick slices. I think next time I'll just coat the bread rather than soak it. I plan to try it in the oven next time to see if I can spend a little less time in the kitchen ;) This will likely go into the rotation of Sunday morning breakfasts.
Wow! was this dish excellant. It was my personal favourite dish of this event, great use of contest ingredients. Good Luck in the contest. I loved the flavour and the textures of the french toast and the sauce. The sauce was perfect, not overly sweet and velvety. The pecans take the french toast to the moon and back. I will definitely be making this again and again.
