Ultimate Maple-Bacon French Toast

This recipe is presented by Eggland’s Best.

Maple syrup and bacon are a winning duo, pairing sweet and salty flavors. Remember to do the first part the night before, so the French bread can soak in the egg mixture overnight.

Toasting the pecans draws out their flavor, making this rendition even more satisfying.

This easy make-ahead dish, a twist on the traditional French Toast recipe, is ideal for holiday mornings.
