Reviews forPecan Orange French Toast
"I used homemade cinnamon raisen bread"
"I even did it the morning of- did not leave overnight, and with just regular sliced bread. It was very tasty! I only used half that amount of nutmeg, and then added some cinnamon."
"This is so delicious. My sister made it for me for my birthday breakfast one year and added sliced bananas after it was all done."
"Pecan french toast is one my family simply loves and one we'll be making any time we can. It's a keeper and one I'm putting in my recipe box."
