I got up very early on one of the last days that we were in Michigan. I wanted to make some special breakfast treat. Fall time, the air was cold, so when I found a recipe for pecan pie french toast, I knew it was meant to be. I always end up eating copious amounts of pie for breakfast after the holidays. Who can resist it, just sitting their in the fridge, staring at you.
A decadent breakfast sandwich, with filling oozing out of all sides. Big chunks of pecans, gooey sticky pecan pie center, all wrapped around crispy baguette slices. Probably the only time I will make french toast and maple syrup is not necessary. The resemblance to a pecan pie is spot on.
Its a new year! I have to whole week off from work and am already planning out everything I want to bake. Cakes, tarts, pie, goat cheese, so much more. And hopefully a trip up to Cowgirl Creamery in Point Reyes to get some great cheeses. I spent to day repainting all my photo backgrounds, but its so damp in the air that they are still not dry. Hopefully by morning...
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 2 weeks and Always with Butter turns one!
