French toast, or eggy bread, as it’s known in other parts of the world is one of the easiest, quick-fixes for a delicious breakfast. This recipe takes a little more effort, but the results will speak for themselves.
Step 1: Get your oven on, preheating at 200 degrees.
Step 2: Get a baking tray ready, placing some parchment paper on it
Step 3: Mix the eggs, milk, salt, vanilla and sugar, in a shallow bowl. Use a whisk to make sure you do a thorough job.
Step 4: In another shallow dish, mix your pecans and cinnamon.
Step 5: Fire up your stove, getting a ring started with a medium low heat. Place a large griddle or skillet on the heat, coated in the cooking spray
Step 6: One at a time, dip your bread in the egg, coating both sides.
Step 7: Let any excess egg drip off, then put it in the pecan mixture dish, pressing the bread into the pecans on both sides.
Step 8: When you’re satisfied that with your pecan-coating work, place the coated bread on your griddle.
Step 9: Brown the bread – it should only take a couple of minutes on either side.
Step 10: When their cooked to your satisfaction, put them on the baking tray, and into the preheated oven until they’re ready to serve.
Step 11: When all the bread is cooked, plate them up with fresh fruit and maple syrup.
In terms of fruit, any kind of berries will be a win. Stuff like bananas and apples are always great, It’s probably best to avoid using anything to juicy like watermelon or kiwi – it’ll probably make the French soggy and gross.
As a point of interest: no, this is really not a healthy meal, in any way, shape or form.
