Southern Style French Toast with Pecans

French toast actually became widespread in the medieval times when chefs in Europe had limited food and they tried to use up all food they could without wasting any. Cooks began found that they could extend the life of stale bread loaves by adding moisture to them and then heating it up. Eggs were probably added for the extra protein. This was a meal prepared for wealthy individuals, as there are written recorded recipes in cookbooks, which during the time were reserved for the wealthy. Some evidence has even shown that a dish similar to french toast dates back to Roman times. This recipe is a sweetened version of the dish with pecans added for a southern flare. It is baked instead of fried to make it a healthier selection. Serve this french toast with maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar. Also pairs well with bacon, canadian bacon, sausage, or sugar cured ham, and a side of fresh fruit. Yummy!
