Pecan French Toast

This new year has started off with a different twist for me. A vanilla latte the morning of January 1st. I was warming up for my intended every-day-blogging routine for 2016. The new routine took the warming up with coffee and a yummy comfort meal before the actual blogging began.

Yesterday’s dinner breakfast omelet was wonderful, and I finally managed to get the post published around midnight I think. What made the meal delightful, though, was adding French toast as a side. Omelets and French toast fit very nicely in my comfort food list.

French toast sprinkled with powdered sugar has shown up on menus for years, but I’ve never added pecans until now. It tastes amazing! I’ve added my recipe below so that you can try it out.

If you like buttery toast but not so sweet with powdered sugar, try frying it. One time, many years ago, I spent the night with my two friends that were sisters. We got the crazy idea of frying toast. First, we put the butter into the pan then fried each side of each piece of bread. We went through a whole loaf. Around 2:00 or 3:00 am, their mom woke up and saw that we were still up. She got to laughing at that stack of toast on a plate and thought we would never finish all of it. We ate every piece of it, but we did add apple jelly to it.

I do love toast – with just butter, butter and jelly, garlic, the loaded kind with powdered sugar and pecans, and even dry toast. Though bread is not something I always allow myself the pleasure of, I eat eggs often. I think I could eat them almost every day for any meal and not become tired of them. Boiled, fried, scrambled, omelet – they’re all good. Eggs taste good and contain A, B, C, and D vitamins plus more nutrients. It’s hard to beat the amount of nutrition you get by eating one egg.

      Miz Helen, thank you. It is amazing – and so easy to make. I think it would also be wonderful with Texas toast. Lots more calories but definitely worth trying.

I'd love to hear from you! Leave comments below:
