How To Make Caramel Pecan French Toast, Overnight Oven Baked.

Caramel Pecan French Toast.

This is a good recipe for a holiday brunch or any time you're having company. Easy to make and can be made the night before and refrigerated until ready to cook. The caramel part is easy to make also and you can add extra pecans. I'm giving you the recipe for 6 servings, but it can be cut in half the way I made it in my pictures.

We put syrup on it just like you would with regular french toast.

Oh, this sounds so good. I love pecans, but can't eat them anymore. I love this idea. I will pin it to my food board. Maybe I could just take the pecans off.

I love this recipe. Thought about creating a breakfast board, but I never eat breakfast and haven't in years and I think a lot of people don't. So I'm putting this on my "Snacks" board along with my chocolate chip pancakes. I think this recipe is great for any time of the day. Sharing with followers again too.

moonlake,

This looks like a great recipe which I will have to try. I have never made French toast by baking before. I have always made it in a frying pan after soaking the bread in beaten eggs. It really looks delicious and I know it tastes even better. Voted up as awesome and sharing. Also Pinning.

Oh my, this sounds delicious! I've never baked my French toast but usually just cook it on the stove top. This recipe sounds like a must-try, though. I love the addition of pecan.

Peggy W, Yes those flavors would make most people happy except our son, he hates pecans. I told him he has a southern mother how can he hate pecans. My mom and dad use to pack up pecans and send from the pecan trees in their yard.

It is a good recipe we liked it. Thanks so much for stopping by and for the vote and share.
