Okay, let me just start by saying that if there is one breakfast you NEED to try in your lifetime… this is it: Pecan Crusted French Toast. Oh. my. word! I’m a huge fan of french toast already, and I could eat a plate of that delicious, egg-soaked, cinnamon-flavored bread all day long! But if you want the ultimate decadence, the pinnacle of breakfast deliciousness… this is it! You take the perfect french toast and fully coat it in crunchy chopped pecans. Then you drizzle thick, sugary maple syrup over top and a handful of fresh berries. And then you inhale every last crumb on your plate and smile in delight. I’m telling you, it’s THAT good.
Let’s Keep In Touch!

I so love a pecan crusted French toast and this one looks good enough to lick the screen! I won’t tho because it won’t taste good 🙁 The screen, not the French toast, I’m sure that rocked!!
I’m such a pecan-lover. These look incredible!!
Hi again Liz 🙂 My grand-daughters are visiting this weekend and eating your pecan crusted French Toast as I write this comment. They are enjoying it very much and have declared it *very good* Thanks for providing a delicious update to their favourite breakfast. Hope you are enjoying a lovely long weekend.
You are so very sweet, Paula! I am thrilled to pieces that you and your grand-daughters enjoyed them. What a special Grandma you are! Thanks so much for sharing this with me : )

I have a crazy question. Can this be prepared the night before?
Hey Wanda! I’ve never made this recipe ahead of time before, so I’m not sure if that would work or not. I know there are a lot of overnight french toast casserole recipes out there, so I’m sure this could be adapted! I just might have to work on that… 🙂
How did you get the pecans to stick to the bread? Ours fell off whenever we dredged it in the pecan mixture so we just pressed them on top once it was in the pan, but then they fell off again when we tried to flip it.
Hey Becky, sorry you had trouble with the recipe! When I make this, a few pecans might fall off transferring the bread over to the skillet, but once it cooks into the egg-soaked bread, they should stay pretty well. Hopefully you’ll have better luck next time! 🙂
Definitely had problems with the pecans not sticking to the toast but that was not the biggest problem. With pecans on the outside, the toast is propped up on the pan and doesn’t cook properly. The bread then stays soggy and tastes undercooked.
We ended up mixing the two sets of ingredients together. We had about the same number of pecans attach but had better cinnamon flavor. Then when it was on the pan I smushed it down with my spatula so that it wasn’t propped up so much by the pecans. Then it cooked a lot more evenly.
Extremely good. Love recipe. Recommend it to anyone!!!
