Here at the Olson’s Dead and Breakfast Inn we have a signature breakfast dish that is literally to die for!
Pecan (or Macadamia Nut) French Toast
It’s one that is always requested by family members. You can guarantee that it will be getting a YUM-O from more than a few.
Before I share the recipe I want to show you some of the fun we had at the Inn last Weds. night.
The tables were set and guests came ready to party. Dressed in their p.j.’s as requested.
I picked up the purple vases for $2.99 at a discount store some time ago. After gathering twigs from a nearby field and spraying them black the fun began.
My friend, Ann bought a vase at the same time so together we created a simple Halloween tree.
Ribbons and graphics printed from a Bethany Lowes book I had made the task quick and easy.
At each setting I placed a peat pot filled with goodies and a witch paper doll my SIL and I created by using head shots of each guest. I needed twelve and she needed 9. It made it a bit easier when we created two of the same bodies and then swapped.
They are so comical you can’t help but laugh.
dinner (breakfast) we played bunko. Prizes were given and a great time was had by all.
Now for the recipe:
Mix together: 6 large eggs, 1/4 C sugar, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 C Orange Juice, 1 1/2 C Half & Half, and 1 tsp. Vanilla
Cut a loaf of French bread into 1” thick slices.
Dip in egg mixture and place in a 9x13 pan. (Squish slightly to fit 13-15 slices). Pour remaining mixture over top. Cover and refrigerate over night.
In the morning melt 2/3 C Butter, 1 C Brown Sugar, 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon, and 1 Tbs. Corn Syrup in a saucepan.
Remove bread and place on a large 15 x 10 cookie sheet. Pour a little sauce over top, turn bread and pour remaining.
Bake in 400 degree oven for 10 min. Turn slices, sprinkle 1/2 cups nuts. I use pecans and use more like a cup. Bake 10 Min. longer.
This is so good it doesn’t even need syrup. Although you can add it if you want.
