Flavored coffee creamer is the secret ingredient in this oh-so-fast-and-easy breakfast treat the whole family will go for. “I sometimes substitute French-vanilla or caramel creamer, and add a little nutmeg and cinnamon to the eggs.” Cathy Hall - Phoenix, Arizona

    I wasn't sure what to think of the non-dairy creamer. We had a hard time finding this flavor. We tried other flavors and they certainly give a new twist on 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!
