Stuffed Pecan Pie French Toast

Our Sunday breakfasts are always special. We get up early, cook something fantastic, and sit down and have a great breakfast.  Definitely a departure from our usual cereal and oatmeal breakfasts during the week.  This last Sunday we had a real special Sunday Breakfast.  Stuffed Pecan Pie French Toast in celebration of the upcoming holiday.  It was just unbelievably sweet and delicious.  Perfect for Valentine's Day, and perfect for just about any meal really.  Heck, if I felt like this for dinner, I'd have it for dinner.  It. Is. That.Good.







Stuffed Pecan Pie French Toast

Prep: 15 minutes
Bake: 25 minutes

Serves: 4-8


Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 8 slices Texas Toast White Bread
  • 1 cup Fat Free milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Confectioners' sugar 
  • Redi whip


Directions

  • Heat the oven to 350°F.
  • Heat the butter and brown sugar in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat to a boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the pecans.
  • Lightly grease a baking sheet with additional butter.  Place the bread slices onto the baking sheet.  Bake for 5 minutes or until the bread slices are lightly toasted on both sides.
  • Beat the milk, eggs, granulated sugar and vanilla extract in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk. Dip 8 bread slices into the milk mixture and place onto a baking sheet. *Distribute the pecan mixture evenly onto each dipped bread slice. Dip the remaining bread slices into the milk mixture and place over the pecan mixture to form sandwiches.  
  • *Note if you want extra on top you may want to make some more pecan mixture.  But a word of caution.  This stuff is SWEET so you may go into sugar overdose by doing so lol.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the sandwiches are lightly browned.  Sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar and a dollop of redi whip.

We ate the whole sandwich, but if you want you can cut them into triangles and only have half.  Although I can bet you'll be going back for the other half before you know it ;)
