Reviews for Butter Pecan French Toast
"This is very good. Made it for family and now they are making it. Gives the basic french toast a new flavor."
"I love butter pecan, and I love French toast, but the two of these together were a little too sweet for me. My kids liked it though!"
"This is just WONDERFUL!! An All time family favorite, I was skeptical of using the creamer since I don't like those non dairy creamers but in this recipe its great. Must try if you like french toast."
"I used a Vanilla Caramel creamer and it was so delicious! Will definitely make this again."
"This tastes sooo good. I use all different flavors of creamer to add variety. If you don't have pecans; it still tastes wonderful! Quick, easy and yummy!"
"I can't wait to try this I always buy the non dairy creamers for when my family visits and end up with left over creamers it sounds like a great way to use it up."
"We loved it! Can't wait to experiment w/ other creamers! :)"
"Delicious. My husband had always claimed my french toast was the best he had ever had until we tried this recipe. This has become not just his new favorite but mine as well. Thanks"
"This is one of the best french toast recipes I have ever made. I made a double batch and froze half. My kids love to microwave about 20 seconds and then pop in the toaster. Will be a staple in my freezer year round."
"excellent for breakfast made it with my home made loaf of thick sliced italian bread"

"LOVE IT! I couldn't find the butter pecan creamer either, so I used the French vanilla and added a splash of butter rum schnapps. This will definitely become one of our favorite decadent lazy weekend brunch favorites. Thanks for sharing!"
"We have "breakfast for dinner" once a week and tonite I prepared this French toast recipe. We loved it and will definitely have again. Served with sausage and fresh fruit for a complete meal."
"This was a pretty good! I used the hazelnut creamer since I couldn't find the pecan, and left everything else the same. Overall I would say it has a 4-star taste...the 5th is for simplicity and versatility."
"I made this on a houseboat at Lake Shasta a week ago, for my 2 gf. We all loved it. I left off the pecans and powdered sugar."
"Excellent, great for my husband that is lactose intollerant. I always make extra and freeze the left overs for a quick and easy breakfast to pop in the toaster."
"This was so easy to prepare and my family loves it. I have shared the recipe with several friends and they have enjoyed it also. I tried different flavored creamers for a change to great success."
"Loved it! Had to use hazelnut creamer. I couldn't find the pecan. 1/2 of the sugar and pecans would be plenty."
"I made this recipe this weekend. I had to substitute cinnamon bun creamer but it was still easy and yummy! We loved it!"
