Apple Pecan French Toast

Because we have a veritable cornucopia of apples in our house at the moment, we have been coming up with all sorts of ways to use them up.

One morning, Bruce declared that he wanted French Toast for breakfast, so I took that as an invitation to incorporate some of the apples into his desire.  The actual French Toast is a good standby recipe that has never failed me, but the Apple Pecan topping?  That stuff is amazing!

Slices of apples, caramelized in maple syrup, with chopped pecans...oozing all over your golden, eggy French Toast is a decadent way to start your day!

Apple Pecan French Toast



8-10 slices bread
4 eggs
1/4 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 tsp cinnamon


4 small apples, sliced
2 Tbs butter
1/4 c. maple syrup
1/2 c. chopped pecans


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Spray with non-stick spray.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow dish.  One at a time, dip both sides of each slice of bread into the egg mixture, then place onto the heated skillet.  Cooking each side for about 2 minutes or until golden and cooked through.  Transfer to a plate.


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Melt the butter in the skillet.  Add the apple slices and stir into the butter until the apples soften (about 3 minutes).  Add the maple syrup and stir to incorporate it into the apples.  Cook an additional 3-5 minutes until the mixture is thick and bubbly.  Add the pecans and serve over your pancakes, waffles, French Toast, or biscuits.
